Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

You choose the next "city" Langster

Luv 'em or hate 'em, I think the themed Langster idea is great concept.

Give us a description of your "City" "Country" Langster... or photoshop one.

Anyone from Specialized here????.... how about running a competition... "Design a city/country Langster"... winner(s) goes into production.

How about Specialized discontinue the langster altogether?
(but you know, I would probably buy a Norway/Black-metal themed langster...)

Langster Philly. Broken glass paint scheme, crack pipe braze-ons and general grittiness included in purchase price.

They should make a U.N. Langster, just because I think it's a good colour combo.

Winnipeg Langster:

-48x15 gearing for the prairies
-38c studded tires for those 6 month -40C winters
-abysmal paint job to prevent our rampent theft
-Platform pedals (To fit the much-needed winter boots)
-Fenders and mudflaps for our messy streets.

(This is my bicycle, in Winnipeg, in March)
