    new pre-built Single speed for under $400??

    Hey, I crashed my singlespeed recently, and bent the head tube a bit so the frame is kaput! I no longer have access to a shop where i can build a new one, and finding a used 49cm frame is tough! So... I am looking at a few different new, prebuilt bikes that I want some advice on. I will put on my bendix coaster brake on either of these, so wheels are not a huge issue. Do you all have any preference, can you find me a better deal?

    Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.

    i've never seen one, but i really like it. it looks good, it appears that it would fit me well, and has a good price.

    Just the fact it doesn't have that horrible stem that the bikes direct/fuji bikes have makes it appealing to me.

    it does feel good. about as good as it must be to start a new thread asking the NUMBER ONE question we get here. if you had spent barely 5 minutes reading, you'd have more info than you came looking for.
