coaster (back pedal) brake removal!

by lookmanohands   May 29, 2014  

So managed to get a first pedal bike for Junior nohands off the bay. Its a specialized hotrock 12 with a dreaded coaster brake. Has anyone managed to disable it, they seem more of a hindrance when learning to ride. Is it as simple as removing the brake shoes drom inside the hub? Google as ever is a minefield.
