Default Re: lower gearing for a cranbrook

almost all the hubs these days take the same size 3 tabbed sprocket. (bendix is slightly smaller, sometimes they fit other hubs, sometimes they don't.

search ebay for coaster brake cog (or sprocket) and look for the ones with 3 tabs.

an older bike shop should have piles of them laying around, too.

one thing about a larger rear cog, your coaster brake will work a lot better. i switched from an 18 to a 20 and almost launched off my bike the first stop. it'll lock up a lot easier.

or you can go even smaller on the front sprocket. here's a 32 Wald:
