    New to Single Speed

    I'm new to single speed. But I fancy having a go.
    The first thing I need is a bike. I don't want to spend much and fancy having a go at building one myself.

    Should I be looking for an old second hand road frame (horizontal drop-outs) or are there good, new, cheap, single speed frames out there?

    Any recommendations on manufacturers would be appreciated.

    Also I've built a road and touring few bikes now, but are there any pitfalls when it comes to building a single speed?

    You need to share your budget and riding style for any recommendations.

    Thanks very much - there's a lot of reading!

    My riding style is: slowish / commuting? - certainly not aggressive.
    Budget: frame only up to a max of 100
