    What is in the energy drink?

    Have you been to a neurologist who specializes in headaches?

    P.s. did you literally chug 12 ounces and later chug 20 ounces? I would not be able to do that.

    I don't know much about components on bikes like the Venture, but my guess is that the 4.0 might be a bit lighter, and more importantly is an 8-speed bike, whereas the 3.0 is a 7-speed. This will...
