|Alright, if anyone wants to get rid of a fixed gear (54 or 56cm) I'd be happy to take it off your hands. I don't care to spend a whole lot of cash, maybe $550 if I can get away with it. I'm also willign to just buy the frame, fork, and wheels if anyone has them.

|go to ebay and search for "fixed gear" in the sporting goods,cycling section. THeres one guy whos selling like 8 bikes, all fixed gear.
Or if you want something new get a Specialized Langster or a Bianchi Pista.

|for $550, you can buy a new fixie. Fuji Track, Bianchi Pista are the two popular models. The Specialize Langster looks like a great deal, should be very easy to convert to a fix.
If you just want to buy the frame/fork, try ebay. Get an old Italian steel from the 80s-90s, and starts from there. IMHO, fixies built this way always have more "character" to it. I am in the process of building one right now(Pinarello). Although it will probably end up cost a little bit more.
I just did a search on Ebay, and found this, would be perfect for conversion into a fixed gear.
