you can use a suicide hub and be okay if you do it right and leave both brakes on. or if you use the front, be ready to use your shoe to stop the rear wheel if the cog screws off.
some people ride suicide hubs for a long time, some screw off their cogs really quickly and eat on big hills and stuff. sheldon brown says it's okay, and i trust him, but i'd still be ultra careful running that sort of a setup.
