Left Hand Drive
So i've got myself a bitchin new polo bike with splined bb/cranks/chainring that allow me to run a left hand drive setup if i so desired.
The only advantage to this that I can think of is that i wouldn't risk smacking and bending my chainring when shooting under the bb, it's solid bmx stuff though so i doubt this is even possible.
The other consideration is that the fixed gear will be pulling off when under forward motion but tightening when skidding, either way rotofix and a good lockring means this shouldn't matter. So a disadvantage i that I wouldn't be able to flip the hub to free either, cos the ratchet in the freewheel would be running the wrong way.
anything i've missed?
