I live in Manchester, UK and I need a black single speed bicycle to commute around my city. My height is 175cm and I have up to £400 to spend.
I really like the look of the State Bicycle Matte Black 3.0:
Build Custom Matte-Black III Bike | Fixie Bike | State Bicycle Co.
Unfortunately on every website I've looked it's sold out.
These are the bicycles I'm currently looking at:
Se Draft Lite Singlespeed Bike 2013 - Se from Triton Cycles UK
Nolobi 2014 Matte Black Single Speed Bike Fixie/Fixed Gear Track Bike - 56cm Frame - NOLOBI2094
All Black Single Speed Fixed Gear Track Fixie Bike - 56cm Frame - NLBLKBLK56
Black Fixie/Single Speed Bike w/Sugino Cranks - FGBLKUH
BRAND NEW SINGLE SPEED / FIXED GEAR / FIXIE ROAD BIKE- black | eBay
Fixed Gear bike, Hi Spec,Brand GreenWAY*london* | eBay
Is it worth trying to buy the parts to a bicycle and then finding a retailer who specializes in bike craft to build one for me? Or are any of these bikes worth buying? If you guys have any suggestions of bikes or sites I should look at please message here, would very much appreciate it.
Also, please let me know if I've posted in the wrong sub-forum.
