MTB singlespeeds are the hot new thing. Here's a few models you'll be able to get ahold of pretty easily:
Surly 1x1: Steel, and can handle fatties real well. Horizontal drops.
On-One Inbred: Steel, fancy stays and fork, sliding dropouts. Has a der hanger for going geared.
Kona Unit/Explosif: Steel, sliding dropouts. Explosif has a der hanger for going geared.
Bianchi **SS (SASS, WUSS, PUSS, etc.): Steel, horizontal drops.
IRO Mia/Highlander: Steel/AL, horizontal drops.
Cannondale 1FG: AL, EBB.
Gary Fisher Rig: AL, EBB, 29'er.
Thats off the top of my head. Check the mtbr.com reviews under singlespeed for more ideas.
