Specialized Langster Single Speed Road Bike

Specialized Langster Single Speed Bike Review

The Specialized Langster is a road bike, which is not only great value but also a good little performer, as much at home on suburban streets as it is tearing up the racetrack. It has a single speed gear set up that provides the rider with direct control over the wheels and it has a light aluminium frame combined with a lighter still carbon fork to give it a modern outlook, despite the fact that this is a relatively traditional cycle.

Many of the design choices present on the Specialized Langster have been taken in order to reduce its weight and first time riders will definitely be impressed with this. The stiff set up combines with this to make it a speedy customer and it is good for those who want to improve their physical fitness or just have fun on two wheels.

A black frame with silver and white detailing enhances the traditional design of the Specialized Langster. It will not be as eye-catching as some other modern bikes but its reserved style does not need the attention in order to shine.
