Do you want a SS or a "fixed gear"?
Courier bikes tend to be "fixed gear". It's just a fad to me. Single speeds seem to be a fad too, too many people think they're really burly if they ride a single speed - whatever.
If you're commuting, year round, in a relatively falt city -go for a single speed. Mostly becasue it's such little maintenance. rain/snow take there toll on derailleurs/cables/ and shifters.
If you just want to commute in the summer, get a geared bike. You'll get a lot more use out of it.
