Sheesh! I rode yesterday, but didn't wear the skinsuit. It was a little bit cold for that!

I did try it on earlier this week and determined the skinsuit does fit, though I look a little bit like the Michelin man. The better half was not around at the time to take a picture of me.

A picture of me in the skinsuit will get taken, and when it does it will get posted in this thread. I promise!

OK, so there's a few goodies in here. Not too much I need but I found a couple things: an under BB cable guide that may be used on the Jr Roadie project I just started for a friends little guy. And, my wife really dug this odometer for her townie. I'll be going out to the shed in a few to see what I've got that'll fit in there and should have it the mail Monday or Tuesday.

I'll speak up if I see something I added gets selected.
(and sorry in advance, but when the garage is way below freezing I don't do much degreasing or cleaning out there. one item I added should be usefull for someone though, as is another or two.)

Crap to some... just as long is it's not crap to all. Be prepared to pay $15 to ship it on.

The box arrived this afternoon and it's contents were crappy as advertised. Here's what she looked like on arrival:

I haven't decided what to keep and what to add yet, but I'll get a picture of my grabs shortly and will send the box on to GordoTrek on Monday.

Would anyone be bothered if I discarded a couple of non-C&V reflectors from the box to make room for more potentially useful things?

I am mezmerized by this whole thread! Please add me to the Box of Crap list. And for anyone upstream of me, I am in need of an especially crappy old Brooks B17 Saddle in dark brown and bar tape to match it! (okay,... a guy can dream) It'll be put to use on a pristine Nishiki Cresta. Course, if the box made it to me with it still in, I would have absolutely no idea what to put back in of equal/greater value as Miyata 1000 frames don't make it on the local scene too often...

So this morning I managed to fit everything into the box (no easy task), printed the label, taped it on good, put the box on the rear rack of my commuting bike and rode down to the post office... and there was nobody there! Totally slipped my mind that MLK jr. day is a federal holiday, the crap will resume its travels tomorrow instead (2/22).

Here's what I took out:


edit: oh yeah, here's the tracking number: 9405503699300290250450
