Do you have a FAT frame that only fits a singlespeed coaster brake hub?
Do you want to brake with the handle and change gears?
This hub is an alternative solution for such cases.
Just choose a freewheel and a derailleur with a hook for the hub axle.
The hub does not fit to the classic 110/135 mm width between fork dropoutsPerfect for custom designs for a 80/100 mm wide rim
and FatBike / FATcruiser / FATstretchcruiser frames

IT SHOULD BE ORDERED SEPARATELY
Warning! The technical solutions in the brake used are "retro" technology and meet the standards of years
The braking force is moderate and there may be increasing sounds with use, which are not considered a fault of this product.
The use of this solution should be treated as a compromise alternative providing, as such, support of a powerful front brake.
The braking force is due to the tightening of the friction belt around the drum and is moderate comparing other possible solutions..
For more demanding projects, if possible/feasible, we recommend a disc brake solution.
IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT THAT THE FRONT BRAKE IS SUFFICIENTLY EFFICIENT IN THIS CASE.
The kit includes elements for attaching the cable
