My "next door neighbor" in the office rides a single speed/coaster brake Van Dessel to work, and likes it quite a lot. It's pretty basic Aluminum construction, aside from the curved tubes, but seems well put together. Nothing fancy, but a good value for not a lot of $$$.

Looking at the Country Road Bob, I can't help but wonder if that curved downtube would be an easier grab at barrier dismounts! ;-)

I just built one up (CRB), it's lots of fun.

I forgot to mention, if you build it up on a small size, make sure you get a wide straddle cable holder for the rear canti's.
