The old thread is closed.
It was scatalogical.

If you want in, just let me know.
In case you're just tuning in, you'll get the box from the person on the list in front of you. You remove whatever you think you can use, or maybe just want (no Ebay resale jive, obviously) and fill the box back up with cool stuff you'll never get around to using.
You send you're screen name to me and your address to the guy on the list before you. If you have trouble you can email me, sailorbenjamin@yahoo.com
If you want to peruse the original soap opera, it's here;

Simply put, the box was a bit big for its cardboard. noglider took a few things out, which I will leave to him to post. We simply had to lose some of those Suntour mb cranks. They were too heavy, and no one wants them .... not that anyone wants the really large schwinn stem shifters or the bb spindle with pitting or the drilliumed levers, but hey, they aren't as heavy as a crank.

Tom showed us his deck, his garage, and his basement. He gave both lostarchitect and me a bunch of parts, and I got a beater Nishiki out of Tom's garage to the delight of wife_of_noglider.

Tom has his basement roughly organized by part types and lostarchitect had a list of parts he needed for his latest build (which will probably look great ... looking forward to the pics). When the conversation turned to saddles, indeed, Tom told us about his achy balls. It's apparently a real problem.

noglider and lostarchitect will post more pictures when they get around to it.

As Received:




The Nishiki: (I will post more pictures later)

Actually, when the next person receives the box I have a request: the POW/MIA motorcycle flag was put in on accident. I wonder if it could be sent back to me? Please

Or, Mazdaspeed - you're in Washington, too. Would that work? I'll pay shipping!

Thanks!

DD

Looks like it is headed my way, DD. PM me your address and I will ship it off when I send the box to Mazdaspeed.

Thanks for the pics and the report TimmyT. I'm glad that we've got the BOC moving again. It sounds like Tom has a nice setup there and, as you mentioned in your post, Tom is more than generous with sharing what he has. It's the kind of spirit many here on the forums have for sure...

I'm not going to speak to your saddle discussion for fear of getting this thread closed down too!

I'm still here. Not a dude, but you can still call me El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing. I don't have enough posts to send PMs yet though. I believe Sailor Ben has my address & can hopefully forward it to Pompiere.

This is an exploded view of the BOC. I learned today that the cat toy is from Drillium Dude's cat, Sacha, to the next cat on the list. One of those Suntour mtb cranks made it through, after all.



I added a Cannnondale velcro water bottle holder (as promised), some thin velox rim tape that I can't use, a vittoria 700c x 23 that has some life in it, and a kickstand (HA!)

I took out a very light Peugeot crank and a spare skewer.

One of the great advantages of living in New York City is that there is post office counter service during the day on Sundays. The service is the same speed as anywhere else, however. I was waiting in this line for over 20 minutes before I realized I could just use the machine (YAY!). People were coming directly from shopping, buying boxes, and sending those purchases around the planet. (The woman behind me was sending a big box to South Korea.)

When the box was stuck, someone called, "Theft!" Right now, I think that we're keeping the USPS in business. The value of postage used to send this box exceeds the value of its contents. I chortled to myself when the machine asked (twice) if I wanted various kinds of insurance and certification.



A gratuitous shot of the Farley Main Post Office. The bike with the reflectors in the foreground is my Fuji. The weird lighting on the building, for those who aren't familiar with New York, is the lighting from a giant LED billboard on the backside of Madison Square Garden.



It's now gone to Balindamood ... should be there by the end of the week. Drillium Dude, your flag is on its way home ... should be there on Wednesday or so.

Those are actually SR-Suntour mtb cranks, not Suntour. No relation to the late great company. SR-Suntour is the Taiwanese remnant of when both companies were bought out and had some parts outsourced to Taiwan. This entity spun off after the bankruptcy of the parent company.

I have a stripped DS crankarm same as these. Yes, they weigh a ton.

Man, that box is on its last legs!

Ah, but Tom doesn't have Shweddy Balls.

I was present to ensure the handoff happened!

I wasn't originally in the game, but I traded a very nice 5 speed Regina freewheel for a beat up Shimano derailleur in the BOC anyway. I was going to add a Campy cable guide, but Tom and Tim pronounced it "not crap" and urged me not to include it! While I was there, Tom gave me a pile of parts for my beater build I'm working on, a late 70's or early 80's Soma. We had sandwiches, played with dogs, and a good time was had by all.

And the box moves on!
