My current brake setup is a coaster brake and a rear handbrake on a single speed hub. The bike came with the coaster brake, and I added the handbrake myself. the frame had a hole drilled in the cross bar between the chainstays for the fender. since i removed my rear fender for chain clearance, I realized that I had the opportunity to add a handbrake. I have no front brake and will probably keep it that way. My current ssetup works ok, except in the rain I cant rely on my handbrake, and even using both brakes, making quick stops can be a little hairy. I just put new pads on the handbrake. I cant weld and even if i could i dont have access to equipment. I dont want to switch rims because the rim i have is a custom rim that I got for a great price and the seller i bought from closed down their ebay store. one idea i had was to possibly somehow make the coaster brake lever operated instead of pedaling backwards. i thought of doing this with a cable and spring, but not sure exactly how or even if that could work. anyone have any ideas on the subject? please keep it along the idea of something I can easily do at home. if you suggest i get a rim that can fit a drum or disc brake, that will be of no use to me.
