Tricross singlespeed-a possible fixie?

My work has started the cycle to work scheme, and although I don't actually need it (I have a pompino) I've been toying with the getting the Specialised Tricross singlespeed and setting it up as a fixed. My head says no as I already have a fixie that is practical enough to take mudguards and big tyres for Winter use. Howeve II would be looking at a 40% saving once the tax is deducted and I'd be paying monthly over 18 months-would seem daft not to! Has anyone seen the singlespeed model? How does it look, or is the 2008 Langstera better bet? It looks better than the horrible 2007 model.

    Wouldn't fancy it - elastomer inserts in the forks seem like a pure marketing wheeze to me. Even if they don't compromise the fork's strength, requiring it to be overbuilt to compensate, the elastomers will go hard eventually - and will you be able to get spares?

    OK if you regard bikes as disposable, I suppose.
    So you voted, and now you've got a government. I just hope you like it.
