For the money IMHO these are the best rigids out there for modern bikes. It's a Pipedream Sirrius - cro-mo, suspension corrected for 100mm.

Not sure if PD still sell them but it was £45 direct, delivered, with disc mount faced too. Cracking deal. They did them in black, white and red.

[edit]

Have a look here (click on 'i' for more info and pics - one looks very familiar - they nicked my pic from a STW topic!):

This as been the only bike ive been riding over last few weeks :D

Was not sure if singlespeeding was for me :? BUT, i am really enjoying it!

After 20 years of gears, its quite refreshing..I did cheat and used the WHITE INDUSTRIES DOUBLE/DOUBLE drivetrain :wink:

Now i have a hackable road gear and a MTB gear..

It rides superb, and has that high quality steel feel that US LOBSTERS seem to have :D

If you have not tried a one gear bike, give it a go :wink:

yes - works OK, but it's a little stiff - could be just mine though. I got it from charliethebikemonger.
