A few things, you might want a different crankset and bottom bracket but if not here's my suggestion: Check your chainline and see which ring if any is centered to the middle of the cassette or freewheel on your bike, that's where you want your chainring you'll be leaving, if you're not going to leave the FD, use a chainguard, or a bashguard I'd make damn sure my RD tension was very good since that's what you're going to be relying on solely to keep the chain on your bike. You might find moving a larger ring to an inner position rubs the frame etc etc etc.. is this a nice bike you want to try this on or something you can learn from mistakes with? I also don't know your experience level, but judging by the question I suspect it's not much?
