Handsome Cycles Prototype Sealed Bearing Coaster Brake Hub

There is very little information out there at the moment, but I just spied this prototype sealed bearing coaster brake hub on the Handsome Cycles Facebook page. For people that commute year round on a coaster brake, this could be a welcome upgrade from the mostly low-end, open bearing models out there now. Definitely worth keeping an eye out for if you find yourself tired of repacking a cheap coaster brake hub on your everyday commuter.

    False. Repacking coaster brake hubs is fun.

    Agreed. Therapeutic.

    This is amazing! I’ve been waiting for someone to make one of these for a while.
