    The Sturmey Archer 3 speed hub was designed to go into neutral at the exact moment when you did stand up pedaling, with the obvious catastrophic results.

    Indeed! That's what I blame my stunted growth on.

    Anyone ridden a back pedal brake bike? I have. They would free wheel OK but, pressure on back pedal would apply a ....not too efficient....brake.

    Most 'fixies' have a brake on the front wheel only, which is dangerous enough, but some have no brakes at all which is just bonkers.
