I like this hub, it's perfect for me. The only thing is the brake is weak, can anyone tell me how to adjust it? Stopping is nice.

Got the service manual? there are downloads on the internet.

Remember a Coaster brake because of Physics is less effective than a Front brake,

So , for better braking Add a front brake.

I have an S2 and also think it's great. I second adding the front brake. Rear brakes are for slowing, not stopping.
