Strengths:    Light. It's about 19 pounds.

Weaknesses:    Don't forget to buy a wrench for the axles or you'll be walking.

Bottom Line:   
Thi sbike rocks. I found is surprisingly easy to maintain a good pace on flats and moderate hills. You can't keep up with a fast paceline but you can hang with a 16mph club ride. Lots of fun and a great way to mix it up from the regular race bike. The more narrow bars are easy to adapt to as well.

Strengths:    Cool design, well balanced, light.
Nice funky commuter bike!


Weaknesses:    Terrible brakes!!! The rims...well, you cannot expect too much for that price!If your goal is to cruise through the city th they'll do the job! If you want to work as a bike messenger...then forget it!

Bottom Line:   
Bought it in the States before moving to Sydney! Excellent commuter bike, very sharp, light and fast!
Flaws? The components (apart from the saddle and stem)are very cheap! The worst part is certainly the brakes...they are absolutely useless!
Had to buy new levers and calipers!

Good price for a Langster New York?

A local shop said $620, specialized's site says $740 or w/e. Is this about as good as it gets for a new one?Read More »
