Fairdale Coaster complete

Chances are, your first bike as a youngster featured the simplicity of a coaster brake -- more commonly known as a "foot brake." That meant you backpedaled, your rear wheel locked up, and your bike came skidding to a halt. Fast forward to BMX in 2013, and you don't really see coaster brakes anywhere. But Fairdale's Coaster is not a BMX bike. From the minds of Taj Mihelich and the folks at Odyssey, Fairdale's Coaster complete is the perfect cruising companion for those days when BMX just isn't cutting it, and it has that childhood favorite, the coaster brake, as a stock accessory. www.fairdalebikes.com
