Yesterday my friend Spike and I were riding Demo Forest and we came upon two riders, one of which had knocked his derailleur off his bike. How can you convert a bike to single speed without a derailleur?

You pick a gear that's reasonable for the terrain, and shorten the chain as much as you can. In most cases your chain will be too loose, but it's better than walking. This can be risky, as the chain will usually tend to climb the cassette to lower gears, increasing chain tension to crazy levels.
