Coasties professionally hand builds wheels in Port Townsend, Washington for the world over. We started because of our love and commitment to and for coaster brakes. Today that commitment stands and has expanded into building all sorts of custom wheels. We’re a small, bike loving, customer service oriented group with an unwavering passion for hand building custom wheels.
So it’s been a wheel we’ve been building for a few random coastie riders (and ourselves) behind the scenes for awhile, and now it’s time to bring it into the normal line up. Available now is the Velosteel hub laced to an Origin 8 super deep hoop. A rear only option for those riders attached to their front wheel but not their rear. We’re calling it the first hand built coaster brake wheel that is class and quality. At a price point that gives you serious value. These wheels are strong, durable and made to outlast. Below are pictures of Steven and his bike in Portland, OR. He just ordered a matte black Velosteel rear only and loves it! Here’s what he had to say:
This is, hands down, the most fun I have ever had on a bicycle…I am not riding just to get to point B now, I’m just riding because it’s so damn much fun. Thank you so much for your help in putting together my dream ride!”
Welcome to May everyone! So pretty sure this is a first for Coasties, but below are pictures of Katie (and her crew, they all look so awesome!) in New York City riding a custom fixed gear wheel set for riding fixed without brakes in the city. She wanted this special set made just for her and since we are totally wheel/bike crazy we said of course. I think this so great because while Coasties is and will always be completely dedicated to coaster brakes and all their goodness, this move just goes to show how diverse and inclusive we are as a company and group of people. In the end we think more people should be on bikes, coastie or no coastie ENJOY and all photo credits go to Cesar Macay http://macayc.blogspot.com/ Thanks for shooting!
Hey everyone! I’m sure your looking around the site thinking “wow, that’s out of stock too?”. Yup, things have been busy as of late (more Coasties around the world, YES!) and we’re gearing up for what we’ve dubbed the spring/summer COAST RUSH. Anyway, stay tuned and check back, because things will be back in stock soon. Like next week to be exact. Bye for now.. -Dash
Per Erséus (in Sweden) sent us this set of beautiful pictures he took of his bike. He ordered a KT coaster brake hub a couple weeks ago and laced it on his own. He says: “Some things still need to be replaced and upgraded but the hub works very well. I really like that it’s silent!” Scroll down to make sure you see them all and enjoy.
Brian in Philadelphia sent us these pictures. The one above is his, and below his friend’s. What he had to say about us and the wheels:
“ Couldn’t be happier cruisin’ around on these beautiful wheels. Took a few rides to adjust to the quickness. My pal and I not only condone your products but will continue to recommend you guys to anyone looking for top of the line products at more than reasonable/affordable prices. Much thanks from Philadelphia sir. Some obligatory happy Sunday photos of both our bikes outside the bar. ” -Cheers, Bryan & Josh
