    1st step is to define budget. my ideal fixed gear would be a custom Ti bike from one of the reputable renowned builders, but that's a different story if a budget is in place - how much $ are you looking to spend?

    It's ALL about the budget. Angry Scientist - I am riding a Desalvo Ti single speed and it is phenomenal! It's simply the best bike I have ever owned.

    I dig those too. The frame is nice as well.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    They come in many colors and sizes are in 1cm increments, 46-63cm.



    More pics of frames in different colors here.
