Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I doubt you can beat it for the money. I've read on here that they can be flexy, but I doubt the average fixed gear rider will notice that. I think the "cheap" favorite on here is the Miche, but those are quite a bit more expensive.
