Just wanted to make sure that I'm turning the drive side lock ring clockwise to loosen it? This thing is FROZEN. Uhhhh. Thanks.

Bikes: '''96 Litespeed Catalyst, '05 Litespeed Firenze, '06 Litespeed Tuscany, '12 Surly Pacer, All are 3x8,9 or 10. It is hilly around here!

Yes, assuming the frame is English threaded, you turn the drive side clockwise to loosen.
