Coaster Brakes Rap

| |

After test riding out my first true fixed gear for today (a $1200, no less), I realized I needed something more than just a trend in order to make me risk my life on the dangerous streets of Bloomington.

I ended up doing a little more research and learned a bit about coaster brakes. That is, it brakes as you coast. No handbrakes. Like in the bikes you rode as a kid. But you can still pull off the look of a fixie, and it won't kill you when you're riding 40 mph down a hill like a fixed gear would.
