Re: new motor kit
I'll have to admit I am wrong when it comes to coaster brake only riding. I have been riding with coaster brakes for 45 years, and I have never had a mishap due to not enough brakes.
However, when adding an engine, it's a good idea to have good working front and rear brakes and know how to ride a bicycle.
Still, all my builds but one have had only coaster brakes, and It's not the bikes that are going to kill me.
