I remember when all park/street completes came with front brakes. I used to do nose wheelies all the time, that was so much fun. If you like front brakes I say go for it, you might catch some shit from all the trend followers but you will have a lot of fun guaranteed.

I awarded myself infinite cool points. Breaking the rules has never been this cool... EVER! Forever.

I've got emm. They're a lot of fun; you don't have to use them but they're there when you want emm. Besides, whenever youre bored in a parking lot or whatever you can bust out some flatland stuff

I want em, but I don't want to swap back to a heavy ass fork for it...I may just set up another fork or bike with em for fun. I love when i have em.

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.
