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)

Find that dusty old bike shop in you area and dig around in the back. I found a frame and fork for $30.

If you live in a big city, just watch the trash, especially come spring cleaning. I generally find what I'm looking for in about a month. I've found about 5 bikes so far. Craigslist.org is another good dumping ground. As for types of frames, go for a 70's or 80's steel roadbike, fugi, shogun, univega, pugeot etc. Just pick it up, if its light enough for you then you should be golden.
