    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]

    Cool! I will let my buddy Shawn Houk know about this, he lives in Flag. Would've joined you guys had you been around when I lived there briefly in 2004!

    Well, he is married and maybe his spouse goes by that name, not quite sure.

    Sure miss the riding around Flag, it is so vastly different than the stuff we have here in the PNW.

    My cruiser is sad and alone in a Mesa garage right now. Should the perfect storm occur, would you object to a (singlespeed) freewheel?
