    What would be the best way to do this, remove the inner two chain rings, derailleur, shifter, etc. or replace the crank with a true single speed?

    Leaving only the outer chainring should work, but...

    Thanks all for your support! I'm OK, the pain is almost gone. The lady phoned to see how I was doing. Now I'm looking for a rim, it's hard to find another alike because it's an old NOS Ambrosio from...

    Ask them for a place to leave your bike inside, or to put a bike rack outside. A "bike rack" can be just a length of 2" pipe with 2 90 bends anchored to a concrete or brick wall, so not difficult to...
