I don't have a How To as such. You just buy a Single Speed conversion kit from Ebay then remove the rear cassette and install the single speed kit. Making sure that your chain line is good by utilising the spacers provided in the kit.

Ebay kit here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DMR-Single-S ... m570.l1313

Something like that should do, I think that was the kit I bought.
