    True, thats what I was thinking but I was debating on going for it or going for a brand new SE Lager or Felt Brougham for just a bit more. I like the idea of getting a brand new one more then used obviously. What other ss/fixies are in that general price range and what do you think about those two?

    The Brougham isn't a bad bike. Unfortunately you missed the sale Nashbar had on the SE Lager frame/fork set in September. They were going for $80, but now they're at $150. Still, if you're interested in doing a build that might be worth thinking about. Check it out here.
