Specialized has introduced another great machine for 2012, which is a single speed bike called Langster. By combining a lightweight A1 Premium aluminum compact frame and the traditional single speed drive train, the Langster can tackle the track and the city equally well.

Featured by its frame are fully manipulated tubing, an integrated headset, and great-looking track geometry. With the serious rider in mind, the Langster was designed with a very stiff oversized aluminum handlebar. Strength and stiffness were maximized by its 3D-forged aluminum stem.

What gives the 2012 Specialized Langster Singlespeed Bike a classic look along with precise steering is its very light FACT carbon fork. Featuring a sleek finish and 32 holes, the sturdy Alex rims guarantee fast rolling. Power transfer is efficient, thanks to the coolly black-finished 48t alloy track-style crankset.
