Seriously, you guys that think brakeless somehow empowers you and makes you suddenly have a different mindset to do bigger things are morons. Taking your brakes off empowers you about as much as smoking weed makes you not hungry.
We might as well let them enjoy their 2oz off their bike's so they can bunny hop a foot higher to clear that 70mph jump over...el toro.
So I am a moron for thinking brakeless helps me go for shit? That is an ignorant thing to say, people ride the setup they like insulting them for that just shows you probably can't ride and are a punk ass kid that follows bmx trends
First, I don't follow trends. My seat post is visible, I run brakes 85% of the time with a gyro, and set my bike up my way-no massive bars or top load stem etc. I don't wear skinny jeans, run no more than 2 pegs at a time, don't have long hair, don't wear a beanie when it is over 40 degrees, and I think Dubstep and "music" like that is shitty. I have been riding for 13 years, and run every setup over the years, brakes, no brakes, freecoaster, only front brake, only rear brake, straight cable, gyro, name it, I have probably had it set up on my ride. Saying that I "probably can't ride, and are a punk ass kid that follows trends" is purely based on the same ignorance you claimed I have.
Second, you generalized and said brakes make everyone puss out.-"no brakes i genuinley think brakeless kind of makes you not puss out of big shit you want to try its like commit or die" which is a very loaded and ignorant statement, GENERALIZING everyone into that category. Irony is the photo you have for your profile has brakes on the setup.
Maybe YOU think YOU are empowered, but you shouldn't tell people that it will make them not "puss out". Too many little kids hear shit like that, take their brakes off, and slam into things because they can't stop due to some "older guy" saying it is macho and would somehow make them instantly a better rider.
Oh and if you use "probably" to insult someone, you look like you have no confidence in your insult, making you appear foolish.
