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)

Hmm... I thought Harris Cyclery had some. Could be wrong though.

EDIT: Wrong apparently. I don't know where to find them, other than the parts bin at a bike shop that's been around for awhile.

I hear there's a nifty online auction site, but I can't remember the name.

I would check the used bin at your LBS. I have some on an old bike of mine, and I am sure I have seen lots of them kicking around my shop.

Pyramid makes some that are sold through J & B, a distributor that every bike shop in the country orders from. Go to your LBS and ask them to order you a pair.
