Specialized Langster Las Vegas

The Specialized Langster lineup for 2009 consists of six complete fixed gear bikes, five of which represent a different major city as its theme, and one frame set with an edge for track competition.

The Specialized Langster Las Vegas, one of the fixies that hosts a city theme, features graphics of poker chips, rolling dice, and the famous “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign on a Matt Black with a hint of Gold Specialized specific frame.

Other themes include: Japanese style graphics to represent Tokyo, the brand Specialized written in a 60’s like text and more various hippie related graphics equaling San Francisco, umbrellas and some rain for Seattle, and last but not least an over-all yellow colorway and taxi stripes for nothing less than New York.

Lastly, the plain Jane “Langster” is a not as “specialized” of a track bike in relation to theme. The rest of the specifications are identical.

fuji track pro 1 Fuji Track Pro

The Fuji Track Pro will be totally revamped for 2009. It features a color pattern of Black and Fuji Red with White Fuji logos and graphics on a Fuji’s specific frame made of alloy, which is much wider then last years Fuji Track Pro. The relatively high seat post, when compared to most track bikes is one of the most commented design features about the new Fuji Track Pro. From what we’ve heard, the seat post is like black liquorish, you either hate it or you love it.

fuji 09 league Fuji x Obey 2009 or Fuji League Fixed Gear?

Besides its street appeal, very little is known about this Fuji track bike. However, its close resemblance of Fuji’s 2008 Fuji x Obey has speculators guessing this fixed gear bike is the Fuji x Obey 2009 version. The urban styles of both track bikes are emerging in cities everywhere, but without the help of manufacturing assembly lines; More commonly bikes like these usually start life out at someone’s home, one piece at a time. Has Fuji tapped into the urban fixed gear scene? We’d like to thinks so.

Like the Fuji x Obey that was dropped for 2008, Fuji’s untitled track bike features a black/charcoal matted theme with a red seat post, frame neck, handlebars, wheel sets, tires, graphics, and other red accents rather than gold – to accentuate the bikes beauty. The only clue Fuji left us with is the word “League” (whatever that means) printed on the frame. We were unable to get our hands on any specs, but we’re on the look out.
