Default Re: An Intro and a First Build

Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you're off to a good start with your motor bicycle. Not all coaster brakes are equal in longevity or stopping power. The Histop is Chinese and in my opinion of poor quality. I've had two of them fail from the bearings giving out. Too few bearings and poor quality metal to begin with. If you're able to lace up a wheel then the shimano cb-110 is a good replacement. I like old Bendix coaster brakes and have had no trouble with them.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
