Hello,
I've just picked up my new langster at last :D , fitted the egg beaters, had a good look over the halfords build :( so had to realign the handle bars adjust the brakes etc and put on the lights etc and then go for a quick spin, :D man it is sooooooooooo much better than my now very heavy and slow old heap ( I still love you really).
Just thought I'd share I'm off out again now for another spin around the city :oops:

    Just got back from the spin round the block, so that's 11/2 hrs in as a fixed rider and not one scratch, only one ride on the elevator of doom, spinning down a bit of a hill when a car pulled out, but no harm done. I could get to like this!

    Dan, yes and yes.
    I'll try and find the camera, but it looks the same as out of the box at the moment.

    :D Congatulations. I also picked up my Langster at the weekend. I went for the Monaco. One thing though, they don't have quick release wheels :? That ain't much good for commuting :( Any idea on the cost/hassle in fitting quick release?

    Not advised for the rear as the stresses involved require some chunky nuts. For the front you will maybe need a new hub or maybe just a new axle. Easier to carry around a small spanner, look on the bright side you don't need a seperate lock for your front wheel

    Double check everything if Halfords staff have put it together....

    If the scheme comes in for me, I'll get my bike delivered in the box - I'll put it together.

    I'm looking at fixed as well - have fun mate !
