Yeah Larry, Coaster brakes SUCK at 35mph. I built a Cranbrook and put a Schwinn solid fork that had the cantilever bosses on it just so I would have brakes. Right now I'm in the middle of putting on a cheapo suspension fork. So now I should have a little softer ride and still have my front V brakes. It takes away from the OLD SCHOOL look a little, but I'm getting a little older and a softer ride sounds great. And I figure V brakes are better than NO brakes.
