I really want one of these for track racing. The spec pretty good for the price but I can't find it anywhere in the UK. Anyone have some info?

go to your local specialized dealer, they are available in the UK. Sigma sport are your best bet if you give them a ring as they are one of the biggest uk importers

Langster Pro is not available in the UK, hence it not being on the UK site. Sigma may be a large dealer but cannot get anything Specialized UK don't import.

To the OP, try contacting a French Specialized dealer. Specialized France list the bike.

Aye, Specialized don't particularly like to import models that would sell in this country.

Ah, sorry - guess that's maybe why those ones are being sold at such a discount.

There here in Australia,
I had a 2012 one custom painted, then specialized did the same paint scheme.

You are taunting me! :lol: I so want one bad but none of the European Specialized importers carry it. There agree 2 though on a German web shop, wrong size though. I need a 58.

Not to throw a wrench in to this decision, but have you considered the Jamis Sonik?
The newest model has a B-O-B paint scheme, a similar spec, a good looking frame and is close to $500 cheaper than the Langster (allowing for upgrades or a second tub wheelset for racing.)
Jamis has a bunch of UK dealers.

I own an older model of the Sonik and have used it here in Vienna on the boards.
I have been quite happy with it and can discuss it further if you want to PM me.

Wow, £760 from Evans cycles! Then I can get some cheap planet x carbon wheels and its still cheaper than the Langster. Value for money is way better.
