    You've got to get a chain tensioner and single speed kit. Your lbs can give you pointers.

    It's ridiculously easy to set up a geared bike for SS. You can go to your LBS, or order a conversion kit from Misfit http://www.misfitpsycles.com/catalog...products_id/31 and DIY. Don't bother getting a new SS-specific chain ring, as your existing ring will work with either a BMX or std. chain. In fact, you don't really need a BMX chain, but I don't want to start a big debate over that.

    Also, be prepared to walk some hills until you get stronger, since you can't gear down [obviously]. Good luck!
