Which one do you like?
the langster is easily three times the bike of any of the others

Window shoppin'. Didn't even notice the langster. All I saw was the top tube and was like, "nah."
Definitely more potential in the Langster, upon further inspection.

I'd say the Langster is the best out of all of those. I remember reading about Vilanos that had issues with rear spacing, it may be hit or miss though. When you do get a fixed gear, check out http://acemetric.blogspot.com/ they're a fg/ss specific shop and the owner is a super nice guy.
I'm personally too scared to invest in anything pretty when it comes to bicycles. All of mine look like complete **** now, and I wash them!

I second(or third or whatever) the Langster. But get the one you are most comfortable on.

Langster all the way.
That's a darn good deal, and I think those other bikes you can get new for that price.
