A front brake is vastly better stopping than a rear coaster brake (physics)
and S-A makes a drum brake hub that will last generations.. pretty clean look ..

I have been using mine for 35 years..
They also make a 3 speed coaster , but its cable shifted..

any how..
gear the chain drive ratio so you start in 1, then kick up to the other once you are going..
I had a Bendix 2 speed coaster brake Schwinn in the 50s Skid kicking the coaster too hard was not good for it.
