Re: Finally not so lonely!
I have two bikes with rear coaster braks and front disc. They'll stop on a dime from any speed.
Coasters get a bad rap but actually they are good brakes but I wouldn't run without a front brake no matter what's in the rear. Front brakes on a bike are just as critical and they are on a car or motorcycle. You wouldn't ride/drive either without front brakes, why ride a bike without them?
