OKC, OK
Why not just get some upgraded pads for your current brakes --- Salmon and Avid have some great pads that will stop you mucho quicker than stock cheapie pads.

Good luck!

coaster brake works very well im done with my build just need to shorten the chain on the original bicycle and the engine
