Langsters get a bad rap, but It's surprisingly stiff, fairly light, and looks good. The paint is ghastly, I'm planning on rawing it.

Plans for the future: Straight blade fork, new wheels, and maybe a bigger chainring, although sit-down skids are fun ;)

Thanks to my buddy Cory at Woodinville Cycle for the "Jailbird" bar tape.

Weighs 18.2 pounds.

Nice! single speed. No fancy sissy dress-up stuff, just bad azz.


Do you ride at penn state, haha i do see that you live in washington but I swear I've seen this bike before(like two days ago) unless it was another langster that is almost identical to yours.

Haha, nope, I've never even been to Pennsylvania.


so what can u tell me about the langster do u reccomend it how
does it ride ?


Stiffer and lighter than any

Stiffer and lighter than any steel frame at this price, plus it's a hell of a lot smoother than you'd think. The wheel set is okay, I don't weigh a whole lot so I really didn't have too many issues with it.


if you buy a bigger chainring, go with a 48t chainring and get a 17t cog. Its what I use on my langster. Its a sweet combo for city riding. Allows you to get up to speed on flat and downhills while still letting climb up hills. I just did a century ride from Orange to San Diego and the gearing was great for those super hilly areas right before sd. Oh and whip skids for days lol.

Thanks man! My boss has been

Thanks man! My boss has been mulling over gear ratios on his single cross, it's really more of an art to find the right one!

"Langsters get a bad rap"

probably because they look just like the pista model,
this is a sick bike, and the bar tape is awesome.
