    so this bike here is the spookytooth stealth, i want it cause of its flat blackness. BUT it has no rear v-brake only a rear coaster brake. would it be possible to add a rear v-brake and do away with the coaster brake? or is this just dumb?

    If its a steel bike (I'm believing it's the first one of the two pic's),then I'm seeing the tube cut from a donor bike w/brk lugs attatched on top of the bottom chain stay.,leaving the clean upper coaster look on the top tube

    If the fork has a hole already in it"right above the tire" then you can add a $10 side pull caliper very easy or if you want the other $$ style brakes you can get a $10 adapter plate that comes with 2 lugs.
