Please advise by PM thanks, Smiles, MH

With no one else in the queue, it is fine by me.

Dear O Marvelous and wonderful Craptastic Crapmaster,. if @Mad Honk is willing I would love to share in this round as a virtual participant. He could receive the box, photo the contents and send the crappy pics to me and I could select the crap I would desire and pay shipping for the BOC to the next participant and my selection to my home in PA.

Mad Honk is one generous member, speaking from personal experience and as a witness on many threads here. Whoever is next will be fortunate and should strive to live up to his example. :thumb:

And so it shall be done. I will await the exalted Box O' Crap and sort through it sending pics to bwilli88 whom I believe is still stuck in Cambodia. I expect he will go through the pictures and take what he wants. I will, then replenish the box and wait for the next recipient to come forward. I will say upfront that bwilli will remove the pair of track hubs that he asked for a few months ago and I have not yet pulled them from the Montreal wheels set. bwilli please send me your information for shipping by PM Thanks, MH

The Most Holy and Exalted BoxO'Crap was left on my doorstep exactlly TEN days after shipping ( 2nd day air...)

And other than the very corners, I will guarantee this box has at least 4 layers of tape over every surface.
Will ship back out to Mad Honk on Monday !!!

Mad Honk 01-14-21 04:56 PM

No! I think that guy was the one who rode to the post office with the Box O' Crap on board only to find an extra 40 pounds slows the ride down a bit. Glad you like my inclusion of a pair of Modolo brakes. Look for gum hoods as they are the same as Campy discussions in C&V abound on those. bwilli88 you are in for a lot of pics of "crap" in you immediate future.
Crap-a-teers, be prepared to see a thinner and lighter BOC for the next go round. Smiles, MH

As long as it is OK with Mad Honk, I would not have a problem with it. I doubt Ch0m0ly would either. I realize this allows you to participate even though you are in half way around the world.

shadoman 01-19-21 05:08 PM

Being the dumb bunny that I am, I forgot that the Postal Orifice would be closed on Monday.
But the Box'O'Crap is finally on its way back to HonkerLand !!!!

@bwilli88 travels halfway around the world just to participate in the BOC.

Mad Honk 01-23-21 04:43 PM

Ok guys,
Being pretty computer illiterate I need to figure out how to send pictures to bwilli88. Any way to attach pics to a PM or will I have to find a different way? I can always have my computer gal Friday help out if there is no way to do it from BF. Thanks again folks for helping me learn at my advanced age.
Oh and a little shout out to bwilli88 : Your Box 'O Crap arrived today! Arrival picture:

bwilli88's BOC arrival at MH's shop.
And I think the BOC is now officially a clyde! Smiles, MH

the sci guy 01-23-21 07:02 PM

Easiest would probably be to just attach multiple photos to an email.

Pompiere 01-24-21 10:58 AM

You can also make an album and send him the link to it.

Mad Honk 01-25-21 04:43 PM

Today is Bwilli88's Reveal party:
https://cimg9.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...ccd36cd8aa.jpg
The initial reveal. Pics of each item will go out on a daily basis until it is all catalogued.
Smiles, MH

Mad Honk 01-29-21 08:52 PM

Today I sent the next to last pics to bwilli88. The BOC is extremely bloated and my need a bit of help in getting lighter. Even with not putting in more Crap it will still be close to 30 pounds. After the next pics to bwilli88, I will try to downsize some of the trash and clean up the Box for further shipments. bwilli88 has taken some crap and I am awaiting his final requests of more crap. Smiles, MH

shadoman,
Help me out with the slip o' the tongue about the Postal Orifice... you got me laffing my butt off! Smiles, MH

Mad Honk 02-03-21 07:09 PM

bwilli88 has give the Ok to send the exalted Box O' Crap to the next recipient. Some new crap has been added and the BOC is just a bit lighter with the new additions. I am awaiting instructions for the next recipient, as the BOC is ready to continue it's progress across the country. Smiles, MH

Mad Honk 02-03-21 07:30 PM

I have been advised that for the current time the exalted Box O' Crap has been halted from traveling due to a quarantine again. It shall be held here until the most high and munificent Crapmaster should decide to release it to the Crapateers for further transfer. Smiles, MH

I think given the lack of interest at the moment, this makes sense. The pause should give some time to generate interest. Hopefully @Ch0m0ly can pick this back up at some point as well.

That is a Shimano XT set of Canti's from like '92 or so, and they are phenomenal when set up properly with a cable hanger and wire.

Can we get the Box moving again? I have a bunch of Simplex crap that I can't throw away for some reason, but I know I'm not demonic enough to ever inflict it upon a bicycle.

We need a list to get this going again, so if we can get a few more interested the box can move on. The box is meant to be a surprise, so please refrain from posting pictures of what you would put in the box.

crandress 03-09-21 08:23 AM

Sorry, I am in the midst of a move to Kentucky, so I will not be on much the next couple of weeks. If Chr0m0ly does not come back soon, we may want to have someone else take this over. I did it two years and am not really interested, but someone may need to step up if we don't hear from him soon.

noglider 03-10-21 09:36 AM

I've sent emails and texts to chr0m0ly and received no responses. I hope he's OK but we should bet he's not coming back.

southpawboston 03-10-21 07:09 PM

I would love to participate in a round of the Box O' Crap passaround. I've got a ton of crap to get rid of.
