I just started riding too, but I'd stay away from the 'no name' bike. With 'no name' components.
I suggest checking out the fixed gear resource thread
if you haven't already and read read read.
EDIT (after OP reposted): Whoa! Lucky You! Before you go shopping for parts, you should know each parts intended purpose. Then you build up your bike based on what's comfortable to ride with. The bars, for instance, depend on how you ride. Do your ride with your hands in the drops (on drop bars) or on the flats (the top part). I almost never ride in the drops, so I have bullhorns. Others have risers. And mustache bars. And aeros (now I'm kinda straying from fixed-specific bars, but you get the idea).
There's so much to know and so many ways to go. So, grab a beer and a comfortable chair and do some research. It's a long road.
