    I think it's time...

    to give fixed gear a shot.

    I've got the '06 Bianch San Jose sans flip-flops. What should I do to fixie up this bike? I think my options are to...

    a) Buy a new wheelset that comes w/ a flip-flop
    b) Scour craigslist for used wheelsets w/ a flip-flop
    c) Buy a ff hub and have LBS rebuild my wheel

    Everything's stock on the bike except new Michelin Krylion 23's. Also, I'll be needing a lockring right?

    You don't need a wheelset, just a rear wheel. Try A and B; C would be an incredible waste of money.
