I am looking into buying a fixed gear (fixie) road bike. Any recommendations as to what and where?

Find something that fits.

I have a specialized langster that I'm completely in love with and would highly rec'd if it feels good for you.

If you are looking for something inexpensive check out bikesdirect.com, the buzz is good about their bikes.

You could also check out fixedgeargallery.com for more vendors and bike ideas.

Giant makes a basic model for about $500.
Hub flips to either fixed or free hub.

If you know a bike mechanic who is into fixies, you can make one really cheap.

Get a frame that fits, and make sure it has horizontal dropouts. Then just ask the mechanic which parts to order...

That's what I did (and I did it with angled dropouts that had to be filed down a bit)...
