    Depend's how much effort kids put into it. But they would have to use a lot of length strength to do a skid.
    Kids soon get the hand of it though.

    Coaster brake does look quite good....thanks for bringing it to my attention and for the other options on the dual levers everyone.

    I believe Dame Sarah Storey rides on the road with a one lever system which operates both brakes back first then front a split second later so there is a system out there but I can't help more sorry

    3/4's of the adult bikes in cph have coaster i.e. back-pedal, rear brakes and thus only one lever.

    Don't underestimate how irritating it is not to be able to set your pedals as you want them by back pedalling a bit when at a standstill when you aren't used to coaster brakes.
     
  7. What's cph?

    I've cycled one a couple of occasions with an approximately 10 year old with only the one arm, she had a nice light bike which made it easier to manhandle with one hand when she was off the bike.
