I drag my feet................. Well that is a lie. Sorry I couldn't help myself.

I have all tried it all and done it all on brakes. I like disc best when it is possible. However it isn't always worth the effort in my opinion. I done both manual and Hyd disc brakes. I prefer the manual from the ease of building standpoint. Hyd are a little touchy and it isn't possible as far as I know to have both front and rear Disc hyd to work with one lever.

I have has some very good luck using V rakes and cantilever brakes on both wheels aone dual pull lever on the right hand side, I don't miss and match though. Take some serious time to do the adjustments and you should be happy with the results.

Not a fan of coaster brakes, They wok fine but Everyone ends up riding their motorized bike too fast to remain safe with coaster brakes. Hard to do a panic stop without locking up the back tire. I have some bikes with them but take extra caution when riding with them.
