    Take away shifters and derailleurs, and get the rear wheel with single speed hub or regular hub with single speed spacer kit. And a cog.

    What's your budget?

    Building a full bike with $350 will be almost impossible unless you have a lot of extra parts salvaged from last bike and get a used frame for cheap.

    On the other hand, you can get Bullseye for $400. Mountain Bikes - 29er SingleSpeed - Dawes Deadeye

    Gravit 29 is $350 Save up to 60% off new Mountain Bikes - MTB - Gravity 29 SS Single Speed 29er Mountain Bikes, but personally, I would go for Bullseye solely based on the fact that its frame is steel and Gravity is aluminum.

    I have no experience with any bikes from bikesdirect though, but a lot of people here have bought from them, and they seem satisfied.
