    can an A11 be converted LSD?

    Hi all, I'm playing about with making a left side drive bike; theorietically, if i flipped over an alfine 11 and found a way of reversing the action of the ratchet, would it still work? At the minute, it's meerly a curiosity. Any reason it shouldn't work?

    It has three clutches that are designed to work in the other direction. That should be enough of a show-stopper.
