I've got an old coaster brake, think it's a Bendix, with single red stripe around it- off an old Huffy tandem. It was working fine. But here in the last week or so, sometimes it'll work great, sometimes I can run the pedals a full revolution back before it catches, and then it catches very suddenly. Very irritating to use! So, is this something broken, something adjustable, something worn out, something that needs lube, or what?
The coaster brake that this one replace just had a lot of slop in it, where I could run the pedals backwards a full turn, and then it would catch more or less like normal. Is that excess wear, something adjustable, or what?
