Converting to LHD

I know how to convert to LHD on flip flop hubs, how would I do it with my Hazard lite Cassettes?

You don't. The driver pawls only engage in one direction and can't be flipped like PrimoPro / Profile...not that that matters anyway 'cause the teeth in the hub shell only engage one way.

But it'll only work in a LHD-specific hub. There is no way to 'convert' a hub (or crankset, for that matter) that wasn't designed for LHD to LHD.

- Freewheel threads are right-handed for RHD and left-handed for LHD so they're self-tightening instead of self-unscrewing.
- Cassette bodies and drivers are side specific and you need *both* a leftie cassette body and a lefty driver for LHD...they don't mix and match.
- Pedals are left and right specific with left and right-handed threads, so if you flip your crankset to run LHD your pedals will be on backwards.

Odyssey doesn't sell the LHD Hazard cassette as part of a complete wheelset. Trust me, the hub shell for RHD and LHD are *not* interchangeable. If you're mechanically inclined, it's not too tricky to remove the driver assembly and actually look into the shell, and see the teeth only engage one way. Put a LHD driver into a RHD hub and the driver will not engage in either direction.

the LHD driver wouldn't fit, the pawls on the driver and the ridges in the shell wouldn't match up. Anyway, what's the point of getting LHD. Most people I know that got it was because of broken chains from grinding on the chain. Seriously, learn how to grind

Just turn your back wheel and cranks around, swapping everything from RHD to LHD. Piece of cake. Of course, you'll also want to turn the bars and seat around too, as you'll only be able to pedal backwards. Have fun, and don't forget your helmet.
