    WTB: Single Speed Commuter $500 and under please

    I am looking into purchasing a fairly cheap commuter bike for the new year. Commute will be under 10 miles each way mostly flats and my budget is up to $500. Looking into a single speed but let me know what you got =) Here goes to 2012 *cheers*

    I haven't found any bike more complete than Trek Belleville. Although the retail price is more than your target price, Summit in Los Gatos sold mine very close to it: $550.

    It has everything that I care and more. For me, a commute bike is a bike that you shouldn't need to even fold your pants. Get on it and ride.

    - fenders
    - chain guard
    - lights
    - dynamo hub
    - front (porteur!) and rear racks
    - internal 3-gear hub (this breaks the deal for you )
    - beautiful bike with matching paint handle bar, stem, everything
    - eco bike blah
    - silly requirement of mine: top tube is parallel to the ground (only medium size and up of the male version)

    I added a $35 front+rear light combo for redundant battery-operated lighting.

    Smooth ride. I am very happy.
