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)

What should I buy?

I am looking to buy a lightweight entry level single speed to zip around NYC. I am digging the Fuji Classic--I gave it a ride and really loved it. However, another bike shop suggested the Torker u-district as an option (certainly not as nice looking). Suggestions? Thoughts? I don't know too much about what would make one bike better than the other, so any help would be much appreciated. Also, I am 5'1 so that narrows down my options when it come to frame size and these two seem to have me covered there.

Gracias!
