keep them on while you learn to ride. who cares if your rims get black.

If you really ride, you will be replacing parts over time so don't worry what they look like.

leave them while you get comfortable riding then do what you want with them when you feel you're ready

Ya wait till you master bike control and then you can take them off or leave them if you want. I've been riding for 2 years but I still like having brakes on.

Keep it on, then have no worries when going fast when riding, and do some Fufanus.

Brakes they are brakes.

And leave them on. They can help a lot when starting out and also you can do tricks like lawnmowers fufanus and abubacas

Can you do whips and bars all day? I'm guessing the answer is no if you just started, or else a gyro is another option. Keep your brakes on and only use them if absolutely necessary to get a feel for riding brakeless if you truly feel the need. Even if you have ultimate bike control, brakes come in handy for those "oh shit" moments like when a car pulls out in front of you or when some kid snakes you at the park. Just my take.

Brakes are fun because when your fucking around you can race with your bike and not have to worry about eating shit and like Madtown said it comes in handy when someone pulls out in front of you and it saves your shoes.
