    i dont ride bmx.

    i ride road bikes and fixed gear bikes. im building up a single speed and a standard single speed hub with a thread-on free wheel isnt going to do. i want something with serious engagement that is tough. you guys have 14mm axles but i have a way around that. i'd like a 36h hub and im not looking to break the bank - what should i get? links to online stores would be good. thanks in advance.

    so the profile 3/8 mini hub should be my best bet. 3/8 is like ~10mm kinda.

    You might want to note that the only RHD V3s they have in stock are 48h, not 36h.

    Not really (at least for what he's doing), it's just more of a pain in the ass.

    Yeah, i think that sums it up. But there really is no difference feel wise between left and right hand drive. The only thing is you have to have cranks that are RHD/LHD compatible.

    I'm not sure why you'd need to flip the bottom bracket, but Loctiting the pedals is all that you need to do. Well, that and maybe swapping the pedals so that the left pedal is on the right spindle, and vice-versa...

    You don't need to flip BB or spindle.
    I think you just need to lock tight pedals in and flip sides (you might want to use some pretty good lock tight though. But not the one that requires heat to get off). Your pedals would already be swapped if you flip cranks with pedals on, haha. You should try swapping first to see if it will work, and if it does, then get hub.
    I don't see why it wouldn't work.

    Yes, but they'd be on backwards, putting your feet further back than normal, hence why you need to swap the right pedal to the left spindle, and vice-versa.

    left and right pedals have corresponding threads. left track pedals look like right track pedals. i'll just have to flip my toeclips+straps around.

    you guys are friendly over here. if you head over to the roadie or fgss forums you will see what i mean.

    Didn't realize you were planning on using toeclips, in which case you're fine. The issue I'm referring to really only applies to parallelogram-shaped pedals.
