its always surprising the things you assume should be simple, aren’t always such. In truth, you are just dealing with a bike that doesn’t exactly follow the typical standards, in terms of the type of bikes most members of the forum are used to dealing with. A ss coaster hub, folding bike is, for lack of a better term, ‘different’. Anytime you’re dealing with different, there’s a much greater chance of a lot of difficulties when changing or upgrading parts. So some demonstration and advice from a proper mechanic is a perfectly good thing.
