I've been thinking about getting a Langster and I guess the 2009 models will be out in a couple of weeks. Per a dealer I spoke with, the 2009 langster will have better wheels and upgraded saddle from the 2008 models. The bikes will cost more though - msrp will go from something like $690 to $830. Would the 2008 model benefit that much from better wheels? If the 2008 wheels aren't so hot, I may pay the extra for the 09 model, but if the wheels are fine, I might as well save a few bucks and get the 08. I do like the look of 09 more than the 08 too, but I'm not sure how much that's worth.
