I know no one really cares, but I decided to have a little different of a session last night and went brakeless, and it was a good time.

Hit the ledges more, and actually did more other stuff than I typically did with brakes.

Here's a shot a guy took of me just carving a vert wall. He took a bunch more too, just hasn't uploaded those yet. (My bike looks tiny in it haha, it's a normal sized bike btw)

I think it's just the shot from below that makes him look bigger than he actually is.

Good stuff though, I can relate with how you feel about riding brake less, I see it as being more simple and less distracting, I know some won't agree with me but I find brake levers annoying.

I've always said that riding brakeless improves your riding somewhat. Not forever, but it often teaches people more control, especially with riding street.
I'd probably run brakes again tho if i wasnt too lazy (lol) and i hate brake levers. But it is kinda good as a new skill to learn or somethin. sweet

It is.

I have more shots now.

And to those thinking this is my first go brakeless, not even close. I have been brakeless off and on for the last 14 years. This is the first time in a couple years now is all, and the first session at this lil park.

Yo sick man ! Great shots. It generally looks like you're having fun , which it's all about ! Me being a teen, the whole brakeless thing is just a norm. , but I'm sure if you take them off after having brakes on for years you'd feel pretty weird haha !

If you do, tinker around a bit first.

The best thing I can say if you are considering it is try a session without using your brakes.

If you are new to riding, KEEP THEM ON.

AGAIN, I HAVE BEEN BRAKELESS BEFORE. I just haven't in a long time, and felt like trying something different. Soon enough I will have a front brake on, and maybe my coaster for something different.

I did a brakeless session at this park a year ago and it felt really squirrelly. This time it was not too bad. I think I will keep em off for a while.

Try a session without using the brakes(still having them on), and braking with your feet.
