You can basically make them a free coaster. If you take it apart there’s a part that acts as a brake you just take it off. If you want a freewheel I’d suggest buying one.

There's pads inside like break shoes on a car with drum breaks. Remove the and you'll be good to go. You may want to remove the spring I think as well I don't remember clearly. The last time I took apart a coaster brake was when I was 8 years old

I found this really useful when removing my son's coaster brake a couple of weekends ago. He's now the proud owner of a freecoaster.
It's simper than I thought it would be and took <20 mins, start to finish.

You will just take it apart and remove the 2 friction plates. I have successfully done this and its a lot of fun. smile
