fooch wrote:Just to clarify: commi, you have a 1/8" chain and a cog to suit, that I donated to your superheavy. The cog fits a shimano splined hub, and is suitable for a track or bmx chain (which is 1/8", which you have,) it is not a track or bmx cog.
You can easily replace the cog and chain with narrow ones, then it will be designed to fit your chainring.
Or, you can get a new track chainring if it comes in the BCD of your crankset. Otherwise get a track crank and ring to fit your existing BB and also be at the same length (track cranks have shorter arms generally)
Or, just leave it as it is! As noted by others, it works fine as it is. If you're looking for something to do, learn how to service/rebuild the superheavy's headset!
Can I ask: why exactly is it important for it to be all one or the other?

...and the other half is strength training on the inclines
There's one thing you can be sure of when you only have one gear: that it's almost always the wrong one
