Yeah don't do this
People always complain that kids are getting coasters, I got one within a year of riding used on here for 45$ and ive been on one since. It's a great tool to expand your bag of tricks and half cabs and sliders on coasters are still way easier to me than on cassettes. Maybe don't get one if you can't fakie, but otherwise I would definitely recommend that everyone try one at some point in their riding career

I honestly can fakie better with a coaster but half cabs are a little harder... I've ridden multiple coasters before and I really like them so I'd thought I'd give it a shot. I guess I'll see how it is

For sure, I love my coaster but I made sure that I would even like it by taking my chain off for a few sessions because if you don't like it that is a bit of money to drop on something.

Coasters are fun, and chainless would give you a bit of an insight into the fakie and cab side of things, but if you want to ride a coaster, get one as a spare wheel at first in case you absolutely hate it. Run it for a week of decent sessions to get a decent feel for it. If you hate it, sell it. If you love it and cannot see yourself going back to a cassette, then sell the cassette.

All in all they are fun, but don't expect to magically be super good at fakies, cabs and so on.

A lot of my mates are running the colony coaster with no complaints. Unlike the blind and cult coasters
