I'm looking for a simple solid single speed for a funky commute a couple days/week (two miles to a commuter boat, disembark downtown, and 1.5 -2 miles to the office on the other end) and general messing around with my kids, beer runs, around town fun.
I've got one hill to deal with just before I get home - otherwise, all pretty much flat. I'm pretty much set on single speed for ease of maintenance, simplicity, and spiritual reasons.
My choices are pretty much narrowed down to the Redline 925 or the Raleigh One Way. Anyone have any strong feelings on which presents better value etc.? I'm not a big fan of drop bars as I have MTB background, so the drops would come off the One Way. Would have to live with the moustache bars on the 925 for a while to see if they work for me or not.
Otherwise, research hasn;t turned up a whole lot of definitive "this is better than that."
