Singlespeed & Fixed Gear - Suggestions on single speeds bikes
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I am thinking of looking for suggestions on a single speed bike, also some websites to learn more about them.

This guy knows everything about bikes, singlespeeds included.
I converted an old road bike to a fixed/single speed this past fall and it is a blast. I use it as a commuter and after awhile you realize you don't need all those gears...except if you have a lot of hills in your area. BTW I live in Seattle so I have 6 other bikes with lots of gears:)
yeah there are basically those who convert and those who buy the real thing...
I think those who convert are the coolest......;)

These guys (http://www.vandesselsports.com) have a few interesting variations on the single-speed. Look at the "Country Road Bob" it is sort of a single speed cross-bike.
BTW: I ordered a Straight-up X 7 earlier this week and I'm looking forward to riding it this spring.
Fubar knows what's up...try a bass boat blue Homegrown convert on for size. I didn't think a bike could actually be sexy, and then I built it up. Yummy.
Of course converting a bike yourself is a good way to go but it can be expensive. If your looking for something built or to build iro's are good and relatively inexpensive.
