Default Re: a couple mods I would like to try ....

I have been considering the drum and disc brakes for my upcoming build but I was wondering about the strain on the spokes. Are there heavy duty spokes that can be fit to the wheel to handle the extra stress? I know that coaster brakes seem to work with this ok but I expect that the ability to brake harder will create more strain on the wheels. I was also wondering if it is possible to put either drum or disc brakes on the rear wheel? I haven't owned a bike for years and I have no experience with these at all.
If it can't be broken I'll find a way!


I'm not lost, I'm exploring!
