    Coastie?

    So the other day i was talking to a fellow biker and they were telling me about their bike, a Coastie. And i really didnt get the chance to ask them about what a coastie really is. All i remember her telling me is that is like a fixie that coasts and a free wheel? im not sure if i remember correctly. However, i'm still very curious about what a coastie is.
    So please explain in detail what a coastie bike is, Please & Thank You.
    :]
