[python] AW: Re: AW: Re: hands free braking aka coaster brake component

Hi,
or the SRAM iMotion-9, which I run in my 28 python. To my understanding the 
coaster break hub with the widest gear range.

" As the only components that support it are hubs, and I do not find coaster
brake hubs to have all the features I am looking for."

 How about Nexus 8 with coaster brake >

Hi Paul,
with a Python, the coasterbreak is in the frontwheel anyway. It is also a
lot more efficient as on a RWD bike.
