Think back to your childhood – remember your first bike? Sparkly pink streamers, little white basket in front, and a coaster brake.
Coasties (no I’m not talkin the Ugg-boot wearing variety) are offering deep-v wheelsets with coaster brake hubs that allow you to pedal backwards in order to brake. The site says coasties “give you the clean look of fixed gear without all the danger.”
Hmmm, interesting. What do you think? Cool idea? Or is everyone just trying to make some money by jumping on the fixie bandwagon?
