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.

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...)

Ooooo heavy.


Words of wisdom from a previous Crapper: (I bet his name rhymes with Bad Zonk ! )


Le Nudity..AKA the Unveiling:


My Booty : a super adjusto stem for the Wifes MB, and ModoloSpeedys (prolly for my Viner) and the ONE park cone wrench I didn't have !


All Revved (wrapped) Up and Ready To Go !!! (apx34lbs)

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 !!!

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.
