Default Re: Another newbie first build.

Wow, I just realized that you are only running a coaster brake on that bike, that's VERY risky. You should get some other kind of brake to be safe. The most stopping power on a bike should come from the rear wheel normally 60% in the rear, 40% in the front. AT LEAST get a rim brake for your rear wheel, I'm sure we have some members on this forum who could sell you safer parts really cheap. Sorry it broke good luck fixing it! You seem like a very capable mechanic
