Tire swap on C1

I went back with my Maxxis Hookworms on my Matte Bark C1 and put my cruiser bars back on .
After my crash last week , I feel more comfortable riding the Maxxis . They ride so smooth too .
This may become my winter ride .
It is for now anyways . 56 today but sunny so I did 7.2 miles around the neighborhood.

I was going to change out the chainring to a 36 tooth . I’ve bought a 40 and a 36 tooth Wald and I’d taken the crank completely out today and was trying to remove the old chainring when I noticed the pin hole that holds the chainring in position was an oval and the Walds were round .
I put it all back together until I can get the correct chainring.
I have a Sunlight 32 tooth with an oval slot I plan on putting on my black C1 with the two speed kickback hub . Thinking the 32 tooth will give me a super low gear for hills and a second gear for cruising.
I’m going to have to figure out how to get the old chainrings off first .
That or change to a three piece crank . If I knew what I needed to buy , I’d go that route on both C1’s .
Anybody ever change out their C1 to a three piece crank ?

edit: found out Sturmey Archer has a 24 tooth cog that should fit my single speed rear hub . Hopefully that’ll give me the gearing I’m looking for . It’s a lot easier to change the rear than it is the front chainring.
