    Vintage road bike to fixed gear conversion help

    Hey I recently bought myself a 1984 road bike which could be easily converted I to a fixed gear but I know very little about bikes so its hard for me to decide if I should convert Into a fixie. Where I live there are a lot of steep hills but there are some smooth straight roads as well. I really need to know what gear ratio you can recommend to me. Also the bike has 10 gears and I was wondering if the hub could be converted into a fixed gear so I wont have to buy a whole new wheel. Sorry for not explaining it very clearly but I just need some basic and important information about fixed gear conversion.
    Thanks in advance, Dennis
