Hoping the crest of the wave/fad has passed for a bargain? :D

if you give an indication of budget - circling sharks might know better not to bite! ;)

Get in touch with George - gclark8 on here - and creator of this thread. He may have something for you, or be willing to put something together.

A few options:

Ideal Cycles had a new single speed within your budget last time I was there. (it was a few weeks ago and it was only one). Or visit and be tempted by the Masi and Charge ones outside your budget.

Be patient, fixies/single speeds turn up on eBay, Gumtree and Quokka in Perth every week or two. Somebody was trying to sell a pair of AL framed ones on Gumtree for over a month, a few weeks back.

Buy a cheap steel frame roadie from Quokka or similar source and then make an appointment to see George one weekend afternoon, to get your chain line right and the rear wheel undished (if there is such a word).

Find the nearest hard rubbish collection and go get two or three bikes and build your own out the parts.
