    are you looking into building one, or buying one complete? if the latter, then check out the specialized langster. it's billed as a 'track' bike, but it's really got more road bike geometry and comes without a lockring, making it a ss right outta the box. retail is $600, but they seem to go like hotcakes so they may be hard to find. if the former option was what you were seeking answers for, then i am of no help.

    Take a look at IROcycle.com

    IRO Cycle Inc. makes a couple road frames with horizontal dropouts. Their frames are pretty cheap. I think you can buy a complete bike from them, but it will be fixed. I plan on buying a road frame from them and building it up as a SS.

    On-One Il Pomino

    Surly Steamroller, Long Haul Trucker, Pacer, Cross-Check

    If I had to choose a road bike to be a SS, it would be an On-One Il Pompino, it's less roadie and more cross bike with details like 135mm rear hub spacing.
