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)

Best Framesets under $300

I have just adopted my older brother's fixed gear but he is much taller then me so I was looking into buying a new frame or frameset. Unfortunately my budget only allows me to spend $300. Any suggestions?

Thanks

The only one I've been interested in is a IRO Jamie Roy, and I already have one.
