Coasting backward?

Hey.
Never posted in BMX before.
Watched a vid ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1YhbELKhqM4 ) where one guy (black bike) rides backward while his pedals remain still. What kind of hub is he using that allows this?

You can make a ghetto freecoaster out of a coasterbrake if you would really like to, but it would be 3/8ths in the back, which isn't so good. But yes, the hub you described is a freecoaster which is used for flatland and for some creativity elsewhere.

That's pretty sick. I always thought about doing that, but it's too much work to get it onto a 14mm rear axle.

Your right. I won't. That would be sick though.

And they're really easy to make. But the thing that sucks is there's sooo much slack and it hurts your knees when you smack them off the stem.

If you don't have any information to post, that destroys the whole point of posting and the ideas of these forums. The point is to share information, so why post something when there is no information to post?
