Ok I feel more comfortable grinding on the right side but my sprocket and chain are on the right side and don't feel like destroying them for I am just beginning grinding. So my question is how to you get the sprocket and chain onto the left side how do you make your bike LHD. I have a 2007 mirraco black pearl 3 and Im not sure what kind of hub I have. If I need a new hub (LHD compatible or w/e) what else do I need and would it be cheaper just to get a new complete wheel rather then getting a hub and having it re-laced. If anyone can show me what options I have and pics or links to the hubs or w/e else I need that would be great. Also I eventually want to get a smaller sprocket (25t) how will that effect it.

Thanks

u need to see if your cranks will work on the left side u will need a new hub you may find a cheaper complete wheel but hand laced is much much better and easier to get wat u want and for a 25t you want a 9t cassette so depending on wat u have now u may just want to buy the 25t with the wheel

How do you know if the hub is flip-flop and can u give me links or names of some LHD hubs but I think its cheaper just to get a whole new wheel with a LHD hub so I don't have to get it laced.

I never rode an eastern so I don't know. I wouldn't hate on something I never used. I'll check it out.

well theres either that or the proper which is more i think but lighter and better quality maybe i know a lot of ppl have that wheel and its got an LHD but it has a 10t driver which means you could only run a 28t sprocket but some ppl just put 25s on it and it makes the pedaling a little easier and theres also the demoliton but its almost 200 bucks

dude.. u only have to change ur driver for one on the left.. and of coarse change your sproket to the other side xD

yea..most cranks have the holes to attach the sprocket on both sides but if its a complete idk but check for that.. and just watch a video on how to assemble cranks.. with the wheel you could just get a left hand driver and replace the one you have or just get a new LHD cassette and see if your local shop will lace it up for you

So i guess there aren't to many LHD hubs. For the proper can I just buy a 9t driver or would that not work or for that price I might as well get the demolition.


Also are these the wheels your talking about:

what if my hub is not reversible then I can't just change the driver right? Me confused.
