The Bianchi San Jose is a single speed available at Capitol Hill Bikes for $700. They call it a "simple, worry-free, do-it-all" bike.

2008 Specs

Frame: Double-butted CrMo; sizes: 44-49-52-55-58-61
Crankset: Sugino 42T
Chain: KMC Z30
Sprocket: Shimano SF-MX30
Wheels: Alex Solo Track
Tires: WTB All Terrainasaurus 700 x 32C

Pretty simple. Add fenders and a rack and call it a day.

I have used a San Jose as my primary commuter bike for a year and a half now. Upgraded as follows:
- Brooks B.17N saddle
- MKS Sylvan Touring pedals
- Schwalbe Marathon 700x32 tires (with reflective sidewall)
- SKS fenders
- Tubus Cargo rack
- Arkel Bug pannier
- various lights for front/back

Has been a great commuter. Highly recommended. Love singlespeed.
