Check out my new Profile Fixed Gear Coaster Brake Hub!

(c) Brakes: Every pedalcycle shall be equipped with a braking system which will stop the pedalcycle in 15 feet from an initial speed of 15 miles per hour on a dry, level, and clean pavement.


  1. What kind of magic coeasterbrake is that? Does it brake just because it's fixed (leg-brake) and the lever is attached to the frame just for c.b. looking?
    In the case it's a real c.b. it could be the slimest in the world... and have a great look!
    I'd like to know much about that.
    Many thanks,

  2. It is not magic, just a trick ;)
    The city of Philadelphia was discussing a bill to have heavy fines and/or confiscation for "brakeless" bikes, I whipped this up in response to that. So I could say I do have a brake.
    I do like the coaster brake, but a profile fixed gear coaster brake it is not...
