So I'm building a gift for a friend. He likes the idea of riding SS/Fixed Gear but has a need for a utility type frame. Anybody know of a frame maker that is producing one?

Why would you build a bike that can carry huge amounts of stuff, then make it a single speed though? What happens when you throw 50 lbs or 100 lbs on there? Maybe a utility bike with an internally geared hub (IGH) would be better, or you could put a White Industries (http://www.whiteind.com/) Eccentric ENO Hub (http://www.whiteind.com/rearhubs/singlespeedhubs.html) on a bike with vertical dropouts.
Check out Worksman Cycles (http://www.worksman.com/) for utilitarian single speed bikes. There is also the Yuba (http://www.yubaride.com/) Mundo (http://yubaride.com/utility-bicycles-models.html).

The Mundo Utility Bicycle not only has horizontal dropouts but is available as a SS from the factory.
