to be honest, you'll have a better chance getting a mid-level 70s or 80s steel frame for that cost.
that said, some people believe that low end steel today is technologically on par with the decent stuff from that era.
just note that this frame is a lower end frame; not complete crap, but not very good unfortunately.
for the price, it's not bad though. buy it, build it up, ride it for the summer. if you like riding fixed, start upgrading piece by piece. if you don't, sell what you built and chalk it up to experience.
just a question though: do you know if 58cm is for you?
