Default Re: Sub $300 cruiser, new?

Most of Randy's points are that of someone who refuses to add brakes and refuses to remove the coaster brake. I run a BMX freewheel hub in the back and a disc brake in the front. It's also been talked over many times that coaster brakes are not sufficient for stopping a motorized bicycle especially if you want to:

"Pedal past the motors top speed." The only way I can see someone pedaling faster than 30mph is if:
You're on a 40% downgrade
You have a 50mph tailwind
You're Lance Armstrong
