At least in Chicago, single speeds/fixed gear bikes have a premium for no good reason. I think that if you want to get around and commute (assuming you will be carrying stuff) you may want something that has brakes on both wheels, the ability to put a rack on and such. Also a bike like that will probably put you in an aggressive position which I am not sure you want.
You can also look for something a bit more aggressive that still has the ability to be a commuter. Like a Trek 7.X, Cannondale quick, etc.
