Posté le: Mer 1 Nov - 11:13 (2017) Sujet du message: Rear wheel to coaster brake?
Alt Bikes seems the best place to ask about this. I've got a Raleigh M60 I picked up (basically for nothing, as it had some grips and pedals I wanted on another bike that were worth more than I paid for it). The last owner "converted" it to single speed by removing the derailleurs. The rear wheel has some cogs and spacers on it, and is missing a spoke (i.e., needs to go away). The frame is in good shape and I've switched out the fork (star nut stripped out on the stock fork). Front wheel is in good shape.
I'm thinking to turn the bike into a utility bike/hauler/beater with a front basket and rear double basket.
My thought right now is to finish the single-speed conversion by switching the rear wheel out for a coaster brake wheel. I would also remove the rear caliper brake. Dropouts are slightly diagonal, but I might still have to use a half-link to get the chain length just right.
Any thoughts on this?
I didn't find the right solution from the internet. References: https://www.bikeforums.net/alt-bike-culture/1120337-rear-wheel-coaster-brake.html
