Question on 2010 Langster Custom vs 2010-2011 Globe Roll 1

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)

Question on 2010 Langster Custom vs 2010-2011 Globe Roll 1

I am in the market for purchasing a new bike. I've been eyeing Specialized's new line of Globe Rolls. I did some research and did receive positive feedback. However, after visiting my local bike shop today they offered their 2010 Langster fully custom bikes.

From first glance, I recall that it came with Vuelta ZeroLite wheelset & Pake crankset. Also, it only came with the fixed wheel hub.

vs.

This:

I should also mention that the 2010 Langster Complete Custom asking price is $500.
The 2011 Globe Roll 1 asking price is $520.
The 2010 Globe Roll 1 asking price should be around $400.


I already know that neither bike is the best out there. But, its in my price range & is suitable for what I want and need right now.

Your advice is greatly appreciated!

Mahalos!

Both bikes are made by Specialized. Globe is Specialized newest "urban" line, and Langster is also a bike made by Specialized.
