So I bought a used cruiser with internal gearing and a coaster brake (also with a front brake) for use on rainy days.
I'll ride it on the flats, with very few stops (MUP 80% of the way to work) and use the front brake as much as the coaster on the rear, but am wondering how long I can go before the shoes wear out. And when they do, what'll happen.
I'm guessing, one time, I'll back pedal and the brakes just won't work. The shoes'll be worn smooth, so they just won't grip.
