Specialized's Langster Street is the pinnacle of simplistic, performance-focused bike design. With its stiff and responsive A1 Premium Aluminum frame and fine build kit, the Langster Street is a city bike distilled down to its purest form.
•A1 Premium Aluminum frame with track-specific geometry has fully manipulated tubing and impressive overall stiffness, making the Langster a formidable threat on both the track and the streets.
•Specialized FACT carbon fork increases front end ridigity, while also providing excellent steering response for the unique demands of the track.
•Alloy square taper crankset with 48T chainring has plenty of stiffness, and it's built tough to last for years to come.
I researched bicycles to replace a stolen, one-speed, 2009 Gary Fisher Triton. After test riding the Specialized Langster Street, I knew I had found the replacement. The test ride was awesome. The bike is light, super fast, brakes responsively, and handles excellently. The carbon forks and stock tires provided for a smooth ride. The bike has a flip hub to support both single or fixed riding. My test ride was fixed and although a little scary for a beginner; the ride was wild fun! My Langster is on order; cannot wait. BTW the staff at Bicycle Sport Shop/Congress, on a busy Sunday, was outstanding (Don and Sebastian, thank you!).
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
