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)

Yeah, I've been lusting after one for a few years now. I was going for this one but the bidding got a little higher than I can realistically spend right now (although it did sell for a very reasonable price for a complete bike).

At any rate, I'm stoked!

I just bought a 17t cog, A black KMC chain, extra master link (which must have been a preminition because not 24hrs later, someone stole my master link, yes, just my master link) Slime skabs, sunlite ATB toe clips and straps, a generic brake, an origin 8 brake, levers, cable housing and a new stem. The cog, chain, master link, skabs, and clips I got from the LBS. The generic brake I got from someone in a Fixed gear facebook group and The origin 8 brake, stem and cables levers I got from a craigslist posting.

5$ generic brake
$20 for stem, origin 8 brake levers and cable
33.31 at the LBS

$58.31 isn't bad.

According to the seller it had been installed on a bike and does have some very minor scuffs on the bottom 3" of the post (which won't show) but it doesn't look like it was ridden on much, if at all. The clamp and hardware is extremely clean.
