Good modern 3-speeds aren't going to explode.

How come nobody has considered the SA s3x hub . Fixed gear 3-speed. Flipp it to the left side.

They even have a dual sprocket model with freewheel on one side and fixie on the other.

CVT is too much heat and friction. I spent more money on belts for a cvt than I did for the entire trike tranny.

Also consider when you shift with a derailer, you are pulling the chain tight on top whereas , your setup, the wheel sprocket will put the slack to the top, increasing the chance to bind.

Good luck. I wish I had your tools!
You got a link to this subject of flipping the hub? Also I have to picture the free wheel un threading itself?
Still gotta have a since of humor.
