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)

Fixed Gears around 600

Looking for a fixed gear around 600. Haved looked at the bianci pista and bianchi dalmine and am fond of both. Are there any other good bikes for around this price?
help is much appreciated as i am fairly new to fixed gears.

If you saved a little more I'd get a big block complete, it's a great verso tile frame

Are you looking for more of a track geometry or road geometry?

Good steel, good wheels, good parts, good people. Plus, it has a more road-like geometry. However, it is a tad over your budget.
