    need some advice

    Im all over the forum asking question, which lead to no answers..some do an thank you to those who dont mind typing out an answer.

    Well I been looking around, and looking around and looking around, my mind is seriously in a million places at onces. All I want is a heavy duty single speed, with discs and possibly a fork, or upgradeable to a suspension fork, I would prefer a suspension fork because I downhill and take jumps etc. basically a good freeride ss hardtail..willing to pay about 800+/- dont really wanna pay more then a grand but you know what they say. You get what you pay for.

    Well, your first step is deciding whether you want to build one or buy a prefab. If you build it yourself, you'll have a bit more control over what exactly goes into it, but it might actually cost you a bit more. You might be best off buying a prebuilt gearie and converting it to SS, and selling off the excess parts. Alternatively, buying a prebuilt singlespeed and upgrading the fork or so would be another option. Based on your criteria, something like this might also be good, though I can't vouch for the brand.

    I'm a fan of Vassago frames myself, but that'll take you more along the 'build it yourself' lines, which may be more expensive and take longer. Also, you could go in and talk to the heads at your LBSs, see what they recommend, as they'll likely help you out in either case [unless you find the magic bike].
