First fixed bike
I've been single speeding for a while now, and the allure of a fixed gear is calling me. I have two used prospects right now; a 2004 53cm Surly Steam Roller and a 2004 51cm Pista (chrome), both priced at $400. I am leaning towards the Surly right now (more "utility" options), and if the guy emails me back tonight, I will probably go for a drive and bring it home tomorrow. Of course, the other option is getting an IRO for a little more coin.
Is there an advantage to either the Surly or the Pista? I'm getting it for running around town, fun, and all around reliable transportation.
