    tempted to purchase a 2009 S-Works Langster frame over new specialized, felt tk3, etc

    i've been in the hunt for a new track frame, and r&a cycles in brooklyn have the '09 s-works langster in my size. from $1,100.00 down to $750.00. there are plenty of options out there, but i like this model over the newer specialized langster because of the relaxed geo and it uses E5 Aerotec alu over A1 used in the recent model. has anybody here used the bike? any feedback would be helpful.

    What type of racing are you planning on doing? What's your current bike?

    I raced one for a couple seasons (not sure of the model year-- it's the red one) and still have it as a backup. It's a nice light frame and was fine for a lot of mass start racing and the occasional pursuit/TP. Probably not great for sprint events. I only replaced it because I got my hands on a carbon fiber Giant.
