I'm looking to get a single speed bike, preferably from a local store. I've got a shop in the neighborhood that only sells single speed and fixies. They only carry a couple of brands, State (which I've read on here is crap), some other bikes they have branded themselves that have a hi-ten frame, and then they have a couple of bikes there that the guy who was there didn't know who made them, but they had a "2F" on the head tube. They were set up as a single speed, but I think they are meant to be a FGFS type bike. They had some BMX components on them and the frames seemed a bit sturdier than your standard bike. I really liked the feel of the bike, but it was way too big for me, and the guy there didn't know if they made a smaller frame.
edit: Nevermind - seems to be ZF, which I guess stands for Zycle Fixed Gear. Everything I looked at was a hi-ten frame, looks like one of those companies where the focus is on color combinations more than the ride. Unfortunately that seems to be a theme with my area. The other shop close by is more of a clothing store, with bikes as an accessory.
