Chainwheel etc on left or right?

Hey just wondering I see many people with right-sided pegs having their chainwheel etc on the left...and if ppl have their pegs on the left, then they're chainwheel is on the right. Just wondering if there's a difference.

if they slip their peg off on a grind, their chain won't snap. pedal grinds are easier too.

i think that they should learn how to grind.

Well I can double peg and feeble when riding park, and one of my friends asked me "Won't you ruin your driveside if you have your pegs on the same side" That's why I looked at some magazines where they're on opposite sides from each other.

So, because they have LHD with right-side pegs, they can't lock into grinds? Idiot. Almost every rider I know, 2-pegs, 3-pegs, 4-pegs, no-pegs, run their sprocket on their opposite side.

if the kids friends are telling him to switch the side of his gear, he should just learn to stay on grinds and not **** up.
