Default Re: Don't like coaster brakes?

Why doesn't someone come up with an anti-lock brake system for bikes? Cost! Locking up brakes, no matter what type, can put you down on the asphalt so fast, it'll make your head spin. A cheap Chinese coaster brake will fail shortly after installing a motor to the bike. Just beware.

Older quality coaster brakes are better, but they are still just coaster brakes. Disc or drum for speed, v-brakes or the old u-brakes are pretty good stoppers also.

Brakes are important, treat them as such.
