Agreed, a DH specific crank will weigh a lot more. Plus, your BMX sproket will be too wide to accept an 8 or 9 speed chain.
If you never use the granny gear, remove it and reset you lower limit screw on your front "D E R A I L L U E R". If you find out you don't use the big ring either, you can file the teeth off, or replace it with a bash guard. I would keep the front derailleur on because a chain guide is much more expensive and weighs more than a front derailleur that you already own.
