Front drum hub? Like electric assist? I’ve considered that before, but I’m probably not gonna put any kind of motor on. I ordered a sturmey archer 5 speed rear hub on Christmas, I think it’s showing up tomorrow, but I kinda feel guilty about ruining my bike’s simplicity. I’m sure I’ll feel differently when I ride it around lol.It amazes me when I read the distances some people cover on coaster equipped vintage bikes. I have a number of bikes with different internally geared hubs but I have to admit the simplicity of my 51 Panther with a coaster makes for a very different and surprisingly decent ride. Phranq have you considered a Sturmey Archer front drum hub. I have one on my Menace and braking is good.
