Single Speed Coaster Brakes Good for Beginners?
I have a co-worker who is interested in getting bikes "for cheap" for himself and his wife. They have not ridden in years, and would only be cruising the neighborhood. He also mentioned adding a child seat, to bring the kid along. I will suggest to him that they practice riding without the kid aboard for a while.
I have two single speed coaster brake bikes I would be willing to let them use/have. Considering that I would like them to have a good experience, would these bikes be a good choice? They are both in perfect working order, and even look pretty nice. Should I offer these bikes to them? If I did, I would set them up and go out for a ride with them. Any other suggestions?
