Coaster Brake Workshop – Saturday, November 19th

coaster, kick-back, skidder, etc.

What is a coaster brake? It’s that rear wheel brake that’s built into the hub, needing only to pedal backward half a crank turn to engage. Many older cruisers have them and most kids’ bikes have them, and we’re about to dive in on a pile of kids bikes at the Cycle of Giving next month.

Come on down to the WRENCH this Saturday and we’ll all learn together how to adjust, disassemble, clean, and re-assemble coaster brakes.

The workshop runs from 12:30 pm until 2:00, followed by Volunteer Shop.
