Literally any frame can be a single speed frame. There's no need to limit yourself to something that has track ends or is somehow single speed specific.

Awesome frame choices guys! I picked up a new Bianchi San Jose frameset so looking forward to getting it in a week or so. Will post picks when built.

Thanks again!

All City should make a custom dead people carrier and call it the Space Hearse. Instead of pall bearers you can have people pedaling on each side and one person at the front steering and when you aren't carting around dead peeps, you can mount a fridge to it or something like that and use it for parties.
