    I don't think it can be done, except for welding the cog to the hub. I was thinking of doing the same and took apart the coaster brake and then gave up.

    yea we got it, a little grinding on the brake and some JB weld did it the justice we needed.

    its for this guys grandson i believe, he has cerebral paulsy and they want a fixie bike so they can push him on it and get him some exercise. w00t, fixie FTW

    hopefully it works after the whole JB weld process.

    It should work. I JB Welded my BB on my fixie conversion after I had stripped it. It still hasn't budged!

    Good on you helping out! That's 10 karma points in your karma account!
