Okay, I know it's not fixed, but I already got one of those...
Any opinions on the Uberurban single speed cyclocross at NYCBikes.com? I'm not familiar with these guys, but they seem to have some nice prices on low-end fixed/ss parts.
I can't comment on the bike, but see this thread for awful some opinions of NYC bikes as a business:

Trust the word of your fellow fixies.
If that's not enough to convince you, let me know, I'll tell some stories.

Just walk away, or ride away if your on a bike, or drive away if youre in a car...just stay away!
Okay, but I got my eyes on a coaster-brake 700c wheel that they have for ~$60. I can't find anything else out there for that price. How bad could that be? Can you point me to a similar wheel for similar cost?

I don't think you'll even get too many more responses on this one, because most of us have just rehashed our dislike for them SO many times. Really. They suck. I live a few blocks from the store, and after my first two experiences, I absolutely refuse to go to them (and believe me, they really would be the most convenient.) Sorry, I can't help with the wheel, but someone else should be able to.
the price may be decent....but the guys are *******s who take no pride in their work....dont give them your money
those drop-outs don't look to offer a whole lot of adjustment.
