Caught the bug. . .needing some opinions please
I have caught the "Fixed" bug. I am a bmx'er at heart but have found that mountain biking is what I do for the most part. I own a Scott s20 for the road and completely love it. I am going to go with a fixed here soon. I wanted a Fuji track pro frame and build it myself. But I have found that Its cheaper just to buy a whole bike. Since I've got 5 nice bikes already, wifey wont let me spend too much. If you had a choice would you go with the 09 Fuji comp, 09 felt tk3 or the Felt curbside? I know the curbside is a different beast but it looks like a lot of fun. My goal of getting a fixed is to improve my spin, sprinting and throw in a different type of work out. Since no one stocks the curbside It makes it hard to choose.

"the bug" makes me think of HIV. Anyway, I'd pick the fuji track comp.
I just wanna ride
since the first two you posted were pretty aero bikes I would think you might be taking that into account. In that case I would save a little money by getting a used Felt TK2 instead of a TK3. And then use the money you saved and get a nice used Tri Spoke. That would be a real nice bike
I was in your situation not too long ago. I considered all those bikes and also considered the Felt Dispatch, Trek T1, and Pista Concept.
I ruled out the Felt Dispatch and Curbside because of the sloping top tube. I ended up with a Trek T1. Used will save you a lot so search your local CL or ebay
You don't need a trispoke. You don't need an aero bike, thought it still looks badass. I'd look at the Kilo TT, Charge plug, steamroller and such.

Felt TK2. . .
but if you're in this price range ($$$$) you could also consider:
Duratec Sprinter T11
JuNKie! bike junkie!
are you racing BMX?
cause fixed gear training for bmx isn't that great. I think it makes me lazier. and for spin it is good but ...... its a weird transition back to freewheels
however it is way more fun than gears IMO.
my wife made me sell a fixed bike so I could by my Phat BMX race bike. so I feel your wife/bike pain.

I don't race BMX anymore. I do race mountain bike's though. Now that you say it would make you lazy that does make since. I'M going to the LBS today and ride a felt tk2 today. I think I probably just need to buy a steel (cheap bike). I don't see my self riding it that much. Although they look like tons of fun. all in all I think going with a used frame is the way to go. Patients is a vertue. . .right?

Mercier kilo tt is the way to go. Under $400 cool starter and steel is better on the street anyway
