Question about switchin to LHD?

I am aware that I need to buy a LHD hub and I have one on my mind to buyy but the real question is, can I flip my cranks from Right to Left with the sprocket and will it work properly?

Not advised, sincethe threading for the pedals is different between left and right. Depending on tyour cranks, they might already have a left side drive boss, or have a left arm available with the drive boss. Otherwise, you'll have to buy new cranks. Odds are, you'll be able to keep the same bottom bracket. Most (but not all) cranks seem to use 19mm spindles. And, if your current cranks are compatible with profile spindles, you should be able to find just the arms from another brand that will fit your current spindle.

Why do you want to switch to left hand drive anyways? It better not be because of grinding...

Just make sure that your cranks are LHD compatible... if not then you need to get new cranks as well.
