Fixie frame delimma

A while back I decided to add a Fixie/ss to my stable. I've looked at most of the cheaper offerings online. I determined to keep it under $300 or so. Then one day I was given a 700c flip-flop wheelset. Now I have wheels but no frame yet. The trouble is finding one in my size. I was going to convert an old road bike but for some reason I can't find anything in a 48 to 50 or so size.

My only options so far to get me going so I can upgrade later is the following. There is a GMC Denali frameset in 52cm, my own old Varisty also a 52cm and a Nishiki FFS Tourist in a 49cm frame. That bike has that front freewheel gizmo in it. I know these are all miserable heavy choices but that's all there is in my area. You see, no one over 12 rides where I live.

I have most of what I need sitting around waiting to be hung on a frame. What would you do with such meager choices?
