Default Re: Is it possible to Motorize a bike with coaster brake?

The gear ratio of the sprockets has nothing to do with the problems of modern coaster brakes... The problem is that they can over heat & lock up.

I totally agree with Baird, older coasters seem to work much better than modern ones.
