Transition Dirtbag, Kona Roast 2002 and specialized BMX
No experience but looks interesting. Almost like a roholff in theory but designed around the bb instead of the hub (or in effect doing the same thing nicolai does with a hub but nicolai puts in in the centre of the frame and uses a SS rear wheel)...
I would love more info too, I can think of some applications in downhill if it is strong enough (which I doubt there already isn't enough room for bearings in a standard bb as it is)

If you meant SS freewheel then that seems OK.
The faq says it works well with coaster brakes, but not fixes.
It sort of makes sense, because the maximum backpressure on a coaster brake is your body weight, compared to your body weight plus the force of your forward momentum (until the skid starts) on a fixed. That would be a lot more, depending on tires, dry road, weight transfer, etc.
Could also have something to do with coasters only back pedaling 1/4 to 1/3 rotation.
I don't know, man, I'm just telling you what the thing says.
