    french bearing cup...

    yes i know this is going to make me look too dumb to touch the wrench required to do what im asking...

    burn me if you wish, but understand... 5 people have 1 of 2 answers as i did what seems to be correct... but at the risk of ruining a frame i am very excited to build and agreeably spent too much money for i cant bring myself to just try what gut tells me feels right...

    so i ask... with full intent of receiving the best flame the boys here have to offer...

    french bearing cup, right side (chainring side) right or left handed threads?

    Sorry, I couldn't resist the potential for humor and suspense. French (and Italian) cups are right-threaded on both sides.
