Seriously, wtf is your problem dude? I posted my first thing on here yesterday:
At least the dick responses I got had the information I wanted (i.e. "Unfortunately, given the geometry of your track frame, there is nothing you can do besides get a FGFS frame.")
This response, on the other hand, provides no information except that the responder is a really funny guy with lots of cool friends and pleasure to hang out with. The guy wanted to know about FGFS and you questioned his intelligence. LOL! Hilarious bro!
To the original poster, since you do not want a FGFS (as I understand your post), you may want to post on the more general Single Speed Fixed Gear forum since they may have more information. Personally, I really like the way the FGFS State Bicycles looks and there are not as many other options for FGFS. But if you just want a commuter bike that looks good and rides well, you have a hell of a lot more options. What I would do is go here: http://www.myfixedgear.net/
Then flip through those, get an idea of what look you like, read comments on the bikes that catch your eye. After a while, you'll develop a better understanding of what you want.
This forum would be really helpful if people did not automatically respond to questions like this by being dicks. I realize how cool people feel by making other people feel stupid, and I realize that being a dick does make you an super sick biker. In real life, almost every single person I have met that is into any kind of biking is really cool, but it's probably because they don't know what they are talking about. One day, I hope to meet these super sick ******* bikers. I can only imagine how much skill they have.
