    Coaster Wheel Recommendations?

    So right now my MTB to bmx conversion is done enough but I'd like a coaster wheel and get rid of one brake. What brands you suggest? I'm running 44:22 ratio on 26x2.4 tires. The chain is on there just right with no need for a tensioner.

    You might do better on the BMX forum. Those guys thrash their coaster bikes much more than the average rider.

    Sturmey Archer this year has added a coaster brake hub 'for Adults' to its Line up..

    Most are made cheaply to keep the cost of the whole bike and it's wheels down .
