I picked up my new 2009 Langster in polished aluminium from my local bike shop this morning. My wifeís opinion; ďhmm looks a really nice bike, but singlespeed?!?! I think youíre making a mistakeÖĒ
It certainly looks the dís bís: http://www.specialized.com/OA_MEDIA/...langster_d.jpg
Well Iíve just taken it round my training route around the hilly lanes around my home and I really donít know where to start. Itís an absolute revelation!
It just absolutely flies!! I started out with the intention of taking it nice and easy, but I just couldnít and finished in one of the quickest times Iíve ever done! Itís one of the stiffest and most responsive bikes Iíve ever ridden, it really does accelerate like a rocket and corners like a housefly. OK, there were times when I could have used a bigger gear on the steep downhills and an easier gear on some of the long steep drags, but on everything other than the steepest ups or downs itís an absolute blast.
The most instantly impressive and best value for money bike I've ever had.
