I realize now that this is the wrong crank for single speed conversion attempts.
However I managed to get the bike to work by keeping the large ring on and putting a 22t cog on rear hub. I spaced the chainline using spacers taken from an old cassette.
Ill ride the bike till the chainring wears out.
That one, theOuter ring splines to the crank arm, then the other rings bolt to it.
so You need a different crankset, entirely, to do as you wish.[/QUOTE]
