Kickback Show Bike

bendix1

kick to shift, kick to kill. this bike started with the bendix rear hub. i wasn’t familiar with the non-cable driven internally geared coaster brake hub, but as soon as i saw it i knew i had to build a bike for it. the lugs for this frame were a collaboration between royal h and 3rrr fab. the front hub is a vintage phil wood, smooth as butter and painted to match the frame. the fastback seatstays attach to the binder bolt, a style i particularly like. the bike is a blast to ride around town, where you really only need two gears- starting and cruising. something will also always be fun about riding a coaster brake bike. just like your first bike!
