Re: Hub Brake Vs. V-Brake
scotto, I think he was referring to a coaster brake since he said it was a cheap bike. Ncsubiker if that is true and you meant a coaster brake then here is my advice. Step up to the schwinn mentioned above for 149. It has v-brakes. Relying on just a coaster brake is an accident waiting to happen. Coaster brakes are barely strong enough to stop you without a motor at say 10 mph let alone a motorized bike doing 25-30 mph.
