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)

Non-fixed bike advice

What's a good steel, lugged or fillet brazed, campy equipped bike with non-crap wheels for less than $1500? Does any such thing exist?

Go late '80s vintage. The bargains are many and steep.

if you can find a frame separate for cheap. I got lucky on a Campy headset/BB/dropout Pinarello frame/fork for $300... it almost seems too good.

I wanted the same thing. Look around for NOS frames and spec out your group. I found a Marinoni (SLX Tubes) in the back of a shop (used) for $200. Then found 9 speed ultegra group for about $500. It can be done, you have to dig around.
