    This is my favorite hammer bike after work. My 09 has 4000 mi. on it. 35 to 50 mi. with hills to climb. With a set of Verdstien SE tires (blue) at 130 lbs. this bike is very fast. In 4000 mi. all I have done was change tires, and have the rims re-trued at a 1000. I have 2 Cannondale geared bikes, but this is my favorite for a work out!

      I've owned and have been riding my Langster for a year and have racked up about 6,000 miles of commute and recreation riding. I love everything about the bike, I ride fixed gear and changed to a 46 tooth chainring and 15 tooth fixed cog to speed up my commute. The Mondo tires are excellent and lasted over 4,000 miles before succumbing to glass and metal chards. I replaced them with new white colored Mondos. The stock rear wheel was swapped out with a Velocity "suites" wheel (had to remove the rear brake) and the bike gets lots of compliments and attention. I would definitely recommend this bike to commuters or recreational riders who live in areas with flat places to ride.

        Comments:

        While the 2010 steel, retro version of the Langster is an attempt to capture the hipster and wanna-be hipster market, the basic aluminum Langster (including the 2009 version I have, and the 2010 model) charts its own course, offering up the modern look, feel and performance of a compact road frame. The Langster is a terrific bike, well spec'ed except perhaps for the tires - but then, the Mondo Sports help keep the cost down. (I've replaced them with the excellent Specialized All Condition Armadillo Elites. The All Condition Pro IIs are almost as good at flat protection, lighter, and less expensive). The 2010 model slightly downgrades some of the components (saddle and seat post, e.g.) from the 2009 model, but the bike is still a winner. The threadless stem allows a good deal of choice, from comfort to aero positions. The alu frame, carbon forks, and most of the components make this a fairly light weight bike - mine weighs in well under 20 lbs (including Eggbeater SL pedals). Along with its rode bike geometry, the low weight means this is a nimble, performance-oriented bike. Standard gearing - 42x16 - found on similarly spec'ed bikes works well for reasonably flat city streets. Strong riders not afraid of hills, and/or those who like to ride with roadies, would want higher gearing. The flip-flop hub means the bike can be easily switched between SS and FG. Like many things in life, the Langster, a one-geared wonder, proves that less is sometimes more.

        Comments:

        I own 8 bikes. I absolutely love this bike. But, like all single speeds, it cost a bit too much for what it is. However, I am glad I bought mine. I ride it for fun, exercise, and to get to work. Very light weight, fast, and handles well. I have 4 single speed bikes for various uses--road, cross, mountain bike, retro bike. This one is great. However, the Mondo tires are absolutely junk. These are the worst tires for flat protection I have ever owned. If you buy a Langster, get the dealer to install you different tires before you leave the shop.

        Comments:

        I've only been riding the bike for about two weeks now. Due to that I cant say much about the bike durability but I will say on my second ride I got a flat, I'd def recommend upgrading the stock tires. But I love the bike for what I need it to be. I use it for commuting and general transportation along with casual weekend type fitness training. SOOOOOO ULTRA LITE. its so lite its a joke. It handles extremely well and I love the feel of the carbon fork. The brakes are fine but they could have a little more of a bite. the stock saddle is legit and simple which is what the bike is about. stock pedals are cheap plastic junk sswap them for proper track pedals, I put some solid platforms on mine and I love them. great fast comfortable simple ride. but if your doing street riding in a city that dosent have perfectly paved roads defffff uprgrade to better tires PUT SOME KEVLAR ON THOSE [*]

          I bought my Langster to turn a fast buck. It had run into the back of a car—yeah, they're that fast—and had a really bent fork. I put on a new carbon fiber fork, like the new Langsters have, and suddenly I had my new favorite bike. Sure I could sell it and make a fast [$] bucks. But it's not for sale. I'll take a fast bike over a fast buck any time.

            Langster is a fun bike with all the essentials for commuting or intro to track racing. Solid commuter, with cool graphics. Flip flop hub in case you have the guts to try fixy riding. great extras like carbon seatpost and nice wheels. I really like this bike
