Evening all,

Looking for advice on whether a 2013 Langster will take a 28mm tyre in the rearstays?

Thanks

Langster Pro, alloy, or one of the special edition builds? They're all different, but as far as I know they're all the same frames as previous years.

Looking at my alloy Langster from 2012, you should be able to run 28mm tires. The stays are thin and wide, so as long as your brakes don't mind you ought to be fine. (Unless you don't use brakes in which case you better be on the track and not the road, which means you have no need for 28s).

Grass track... no brakes.

It's the standard Langster you can buy in the UK. I've only seen. One available here.

Okay, that's the alloy Langster, which should run 28s just fine.
