    I have heard 99.9% negative feedback about them.
    Although I have not dealt with them, that's enough to keep me from doing so.

    i would choose the jamie roy over the pista because the iro wheels and headset are much better than what is on the stock pista. for a bike i'm going to be riding around town i would choose sealed bearings over loose ball every time.

    if you want a brake, i think you can get one set up cheaper than $60. talk to your LBS and see if they have any used levers/calipers.

    If you just got a big windfall, look into the Deluxe wheels for the IRO, or a custom frame...

    ask tony if you can get the rear wheel fixed/fixed instead of fixed/free. since you'll never want to coast again, you'll be happier later.
