You'd need something small to give you a good ratio. LBS for advice is a good idea. Possibly a small bmx sprocket, not sure what size they run.

2:1 is good ratio to start with.
So if u have 11t in rear, then 22t would be good to front.

You may want to try someone's geared bike and then try to figure out which gear ratio suits best for your style.

i run a 11tooth cog at the back and a 28tooth ring at the front, its a pretty hard gear but is good for skateparks etc.

Yep. Wheel size must be taken into account, when talking about gears.
