    pffft.

    is the arm secured to the frame?

    if it is, you might have broken the spring inside, if it has on.

    oh, and if the arm is secured, make sure it didn't strip out at the hub. that seems to be a common problem on those high quality bikes...:)

    no worries. i can take it.

    one of these days, i want to find a cranbrook (should be easy. the "weeklys" who rent beach houses abandon them when they go back home) and build one up, leave it all stock, then just friggen destroy it.

    kinda a comparison of what you can buy from walmart against what i can build for ya.

    the arm is secured.it stops sometime with just a little pedal travel
    then wont catch for over a full rev.

    Your coaster brake problem isn't funny. Calling it a "CrapBrook" is off the hook!
    Add a front brake if you haven't already to take some load off the coaster.
