All necessary parts have some thread lock. If the rear cog gets loose constantly, I'll change the wheel to a disc hub with a 6-bolt cog.

The threads (pedals, BB, cog, lockring...) are designed to be installed in the right side.
Nice job, though...

So did you just switch the pedal spindles to make them work? Totally awesome, if entirely useless, modification. I love it.

JokkeA says:

Yep, swapped the spindles and installed with some thread lock.

Everyone on the Internet said it wouldn't work, so I wanted to give it a go.
