Default Re: coaster brake lever on front wheel?

I am going to another bike shop today to see what they think. I know they carry older bikes, i see them hanging in the window. perhaps an older cruiser has a drum brake i can buy for cheap. i dont trust the guy that runs the bike shop by my house. as soon as i mentioned drum brakes, he tells me they havent made drum brakes for bicycles for 30 years. how could you be a bike mechanic and not know that there are a wide variety of drum brakes still available today? something is fishy about that. either he is purposely steering me wrong, or he is an idiot. either way, i would rather go somewhere where people are knowledgeable and want to help me.
