Meet Chiron (my new bike).

Chiron: Teacher and tutor of heros.

It seemed like a good name for a bike that helps you loose weight and get in better shape. Not to mention it will be a lot faster to commute on than my hybrid.

For the equipment folks, the is a Surley LHT, size 58, with Shimano Tiagra Brifters. They make all the difference in the world.
