I came across this very inexpensive fixed gear 51cm Bianchi Pista, It is $599 out the door. I am not a fan of fixed gear bikes, The first two things I plan are change that and add a front brake.

2007 chrome Bianchi Pista single speed.

The Pista is Biachi's budget track bike which has morphed into quite the versatile machine, even though the design is much the same as it's always been. The Pista is first and foremost built for the track, with a stout steel frame and correct geometry (high bottom bracket, shallow fork offset). But the Pista sees a lot of action away from the velodrome too, as a fixed-gear trainer, an urban messenger "work bike," and an expression of personal style. Maybe you've seen one out there, you can't miss the Pista's two knockout colors, the Gang Green and the Chrome.

Highlights.
Double-butted chrome-moly frame and fork, available in Gang Green or Chrome. Truvativ 48-tooth crank (with 16-tooth fixed rear cog). Bianchi Alex Solo wheels.

There's a lot more than just the addition of brakes and a freewheel I'd do to a Pista. Stock fixed gears, or McFixies tend to have a lot of problems out of the box, and the Pista after 2001 (when production went from Italy to Taiwan) have some of the most including headsets that'll just break on you as well as bottom bracket arms that warp causing the cranks to rotate "loose and squeaky".

While it doesn't come in Chrome, the Mercier Kilo TT is a much better bang for your buck at $350 with Reynolds steel tubing and isn't nearly the same target for bike thieves.

It's also one of those bikes that while there's a pretty high demand among SS/Fix novices, there's a even larger amount of people who try to resell them at a rip-off to naive novices. Even with upgrades, incredibly hard to push off because of theft-factor and weak frame build.
