    Flagstaff Outlaw Coaster Brake Society

    Yesterday was the inaugural ride of the Flagstaff Outlaw Coaster Brake Society. I've written a bit about our ride on my blog: RockyChrysler.com: F. O. C. B. S... or: Just about a bike [Schwinn Typhoon]

    Fun seeing you guys out yesterday. Refreshing when most of us are so caught up in our gear coolness. What were the 4 rules again? I only remember the one about coaster brakes required and not being a di*ck.

    Thanks for taking our picture, Rockman! Flagstaff Outlaw Coaster Brake Society-971098_587225114631305_1135602487_n.jpg Hope you'll ride with us next month. FOCBS rules (approved by unanimous consent during our first meeting/ride) are cited below

    RULES:

    - Members must own a coaster brake only bike. (No front brakes, no hand brakes.)
    - Members must complete at least one club ride on that bike.
    - The club will have at least one trail ride per summer.
    - Don't be a dick.

    - must have a kickstand

    perhaps this should be a proposed rules-amendment to be voted on at our next "meeting"

    Sounds like a fun ride/group. If you guys are ever in Southern California in January or July come join us for some coaster brake races. Google coaster brake challenge or check out atomic cycles website for details.
