I 'm really intrested in getting a cheap affordable second bike It doesn't have to have all the bells and whistles. It's main purpose will probably a commuter/beater bike. I ran into the nycbikes.com site a few weeks ago and I'm intrested in one of the models I think it's called cityfixed with the aerobars on it. Any input or other suggestions will be greatly appriciated.

no words to give on their complete bikes, but i've boughten parts from them numerous times on ebay. from that limited interaction, it was a pleasure doing business with them, very solid.

I thought that I read somewhere that IRO makes the frames of NYC bikes, or is a supplier of some sort.

I've been thinking about an NYC SS for a while now, but I ended up pulling the trigger on a Bianchi GUSS instead.

I would cruz over to the IRO site and checkout their stuff too.

Good Luck, I am curious about both companies myself.

Those aren't pillows!

Those are pursuit bars, not aero bars. Some TT bikes and tri-geek bikes use them in conjunction with aero bars.
A similar effect can be found by flipping drop bars over and cutting off the drops about an inch into the hook. You tend to see those on a lot of messenger bikes.
If I were purchasing a complete bike, I'd consider getting those on it, instead of my cut drops.

It seems really expensive at $750, or am I looking at the right price, but even so I wouldn't get an aluminum track/fixie for the road. I prefer the feel of steel. Check out Harris Cyclery (http://www.sheldonbrown.com/harris/fixed.html) for the Fuji Track or some other low end track bike. If I were gonna buy a new fixed gear, I'd personally get the IRO Mark V Pro for $600. http://irocycle.com/fixedgearandsinglespeedbikeframesfromirocycleinc/id68.html I've read nothing but great reviews about IRO from the fixed gear forums that I frequent.

If I was in the market for another fixed I might consider this (in addition to the Fuji):
