    New to SS - got a minute?

    got bored with riding the bus/driving to class this semester, after checking my various options i decided that a singlespeed was the best option for zipping around campus (Virginia Tech, anyone?). that said, i started doing some research and have come down to a few options for a first bike. i know i want at least a front brake and and not gonna ride fixed for the time being, this is what i've come up with

    from what i've read it's a good bike, but i know i'll need a freewheel. i'm not gonna take a chance and buy one on my own, can somebody point me in the right direction? also, i'm just about 6'4" with a 36" inseam, so will a 60cm frame be a good fit? i've seen geometry charts that put me anywhere from 60-63cm, so i want another opinion.

    and by all means, if you can think of another bike in the same vein, reply with that also.

    thanks a lot!
