My rigid and my hardtail are both Euro. I was doing a lot of motocross and harley ridin, so wanted everything the same.
My new FS shows up today. I'll leave it standard. I'm finding the faster I ride my hardtail, the easier it is to remember that everthing on the right side is for the rear wheel and everything on the left side is for the front.
I usually warn everyone several times before they test ride my bike, but last week I forgot to mention it loudly enough to my mate. He crashed my bike twice on concrete in the parking lot, the second time hard. The bike got a few character scars but he could have broken an arm or wrist. So if you do run right front make sure you clearly warn anyone who rides your bike.
