    I have a rear one I found on ebay and accidently won. Most older (70's-80's) touring style tandems used them.

    I've got one on my coaster brake Steamroller. A new Sturmey-Archer. I believe Shimano and a few others make them too, but they were all backordered when I was getting parts for the wheel.
    Ride lots, have fun, skid often!

    LZ, is your coaster rig a one speed or a three speed? I was thinking about building a 3 speed coaster wheel for my commuter, but I couldn't decide if I thought it would work as a bailout gear - spin gear - tailwind gear setup, or if it would be the Goldilocks bike: one gear too short, one gear too tall, one gear just right.

    Don't drum brakes overheat pretty well on long descents?

    Edit, if we're speaking technically, a coaster brake is a drum brake, it's just not cable acutated.

    The Steamroller is a single speed, but I also have a three speed Shimano coaster on a cruiser. I don't like it all that much, it feels sort of flimsy and like the gears suck up some power as compared to singles.

    I think the gearing is 75%/100%/130% or something like that.

    Coasters do, drums don't. They were (and sometimes still are) used as drag brakes for long descents on touring tandems before disc brakes were readily available because they don't fade with heat.

    Tony wanted to see some more pics of my drum hub setup:



    I've got the cable wiretied to the top of the fork leg to keep it from rubbing on the tire because I cross it over to a lever (standard road type) on the right side. You probably wouldn't need to do that if you ran the lever on the left like most people do.

    The larger black arm braces to the fork like the brake arm on a coaster hub does. The cable attaches to that and pulls the lower smaller arm up to actuate the brake bits inside the hub. Both connection points are hooks, so no extra tools are required when removing the front wheel.
