Re: Motorized Bicycle Take a Tip...Leave a Tip
You can remove the brake shoes from it, or just repair it. Both are just as labor intensive as the other. if you leave the v-brake and the coaster brake both functioning you can have "dual" brakes on one wheel.
Check out Sheldon's tutorial on a coaster brake hub for more info:
One-Speed Bicycle Coaster Brakes
I highly recommend the Park Tools link in his tutorial.
