hey all!
im new to the MTB scene and have recently purchased a Kona Shred 08 model, and so far im loving throwing it about in the woods on DJ's and around the street, there are a few annoying bugbears that i have developed, one being the grips, and the second being the gears, i was wondering if anyone out there could give me some advise on how to convert my bike to single speed, what parts to buy and where to get them (preferably online)???
my second it worth getting lock on grips? mine twist way to easily! loL!

oh and another one while im here, i love the maxxi hi rollers that come with it, but i want a tire that can roll faster on street and packed dirt..! preferably just as chunky!! LoL!

cheers everyone!!
