I was just wondering what people think of running a back brake and four pegs. I honestly feel more comfortable with a back brake and i also ant to ride four pegs for grind variations. What do you think 4 brakes 1 brake or 4 pegs no brakes

I run brakes and two pegs. Ill probably switch to four in the distant future. But youre asking stupid questions.
Do you like brakes? If so, use them
Do you like four pegs? If so, use them
Do what you want and quit depending on what other people think.

Ride your bike however you want. I ride with two Brakes and 4 pegs. Charlie Crumlish is an example of a rider that rides with 4 pegs and a brake.

Mr. Crumlish is a Fucking BAD ASS with 4 Pegs & a Straight Cable Back Brake!!! Brakes are a bit of "Non Trendy" Item right now, BUT!!! It does NOT mean anyone cannot ride them! Set YOUR Bike up how YOU want it to be set up!!! Get Out RIDE IT & Have FUN!!!!!!!!!! smile

^ is what i usually ride.

4 pegs and back brake right now need a new cable for the front, as i type this i realised i can use this spare straight cable...

How experienced are you? Nothing I hate more than seeing kids who just started riding with brakeless bikes. Brakeless should only be an option for those who have mastered bike control.

Brakes may not be trendy now, and there are some positives to not using them, but I use my brakes to do neat brake tricks and also to avoid getting smoked by cars!

I'd say ride 4 pegs until you find out what side you're most comfortable grinding on. Hell, if you get good running 4 pegs, there will never be a spot that you can't ride!

^That sucks, 'cause i've just started learning to ride and i run no brakes sad

Go no brakes & 3 pegs tongue

But, like everybody else says. Set it up to how you ride/want to ride. If you need a brake, rock a brake. If you don't, don't. If you need or want or think you might need in some occasions all 4 pegs, rock all 4 pegs.

As much as i'd like to be cool, pulling off the tricks is cool enough. What your bike looks like and what parts you use doesn't really matter unless all you're hoping to do with your BMX is pose for pictures. Run what you need to run to do the tricks you want to do.
