Nice haul. I'm next and am very much looking forward to the BOC. I've been curating some high-grade crap that is ready to go.

Depends on what "high grade crap" means. Could be just super extra crappy.

No, the stem was someone else's contribution. If was a nice stem and if it had been a shorter reach I would have kept it myself.

Yup! toytech and awfulwaffle added to the queue; welcome aboard

Too bad the agreement with r2y didn't pan out, but oh well, huh? We'll just move right along...

The Box still lives on

The BOC has landed in balmy Baltimore. As found:


My humble take. And I grabbed the bottle mostly to make room for all the dork disks I needed to get rid of (kidding!),(maybe). I took the 28t cog to add a bail out gear to my close ratio DA 8-sp cassette.



I have smontanaro's address and will be shipping tomorrow. I am honored to have been trusted as a link in the holy BOC chain.

Nice haul! The box wasn't too badly mangled I hope? Practically had to stand on it to tape it shut this time.

Put in as many as you want, I'm a total dork and could use a couple. And I'm not too far down the queue
