    Panasonic Before/After

    Got this DX-4000 for $100 including a Blackburn trainer. Sold the trainer and the PD-7401 pedals for $50, so I've got $50 in it + some MKS pedals/clips/straps I had + some tires I had + some new levers with hoods ($35 and used the old levers and some hoods I had lying around on another project) + new bar tape($8). So, for $93 out of pocket I'm pretty happy with it.

    Not aloe vera, it's Agave americana, more commonly known as the Blue Agave or Century Plant. The main ingredient in fine tequilas.

    Yep, that's our monster Agave, it's about 14 years old. The Century Plant part is a bit of a misnomer, they usually last 20 years or so. It's a grand sight to see one go, it will put up about a 20 foot tall flower that looks like a giant Asparagus and then fall over and shrivel up. Back to the bike, 6 speed 105 SIS-check, Nitto stem- not sure on this, it reads CUSTOM and I assumed it was an SR, TIG welded fork crown-check, S#- 7F0**** is stamped into the bottom lug of the head tube.
