Default Re: How NOT to ride a motorized bicycle

I use a special industrial grease in my coaster hubs made by, its called peak its someof the best grease made for heavy duty applications, it aint cheap though at $30 per tube, the Lucas Tacky Red or Schaeffer Tacky Red grease is pretty good stuff also, plenty of good quality grease and correct bearing tension is key to a coaster hub lasting in my experience, of course the bearings need to be good to begin with also, I've always had good service from Shimano hubs and so far the plain ole Huufy bike hub has served me well for a little over 1000 miles, bit it may go kah-put the next!

Braking is good with it though, I use the front brake first and only apply just enough on the coaster to finish down to a slow roll and then come on down on the front caliper brake.

Amen to that Huffy D..........!

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
