Actually, single speed bikes with coaster brakes have their place. They do make good freighters.

If you are really loaded down, though, you might consider puting and hand brake (caliper brake) on the front to assist in braking.

When you have a lot of mass in motion, it can take more than one brake to stop quickly.
