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)

Ride it till things break, and they will. So you will have to spend a little more I guess.

Check Craigslist and you might get lucky with a nice bike.

Or buy a nice old road bike off craigslist, something of quality, not just an old ten speed, and a fixed gear rear wheel, and do a conversion yourself. Mine cost me a total of $110 plus bike, and I got (in my mind) a much cooler bike out of it. Of course it all depends on how much a good bike goes for in your part of the woods. It's often cheaper to just go with Bikes Direct.
