Let's talk about the amazing world of front brakes.

If you never tried them, then try them. I think Sunday still has 990 forks for like $60

If I remember you have a Wethepeople complete, so it will just be a standard Bulldog Caliper. You won't be able to sell that.

I used to run front & back brakes on both my Flatland bike & my street/park bike. Whilst i did enjoy riding them my riding just kind've evolved into not needing or using them especially on the Flatland bike.

yeah you can still run front brakes but you need caliper brakes instead of U brakes

I'm actually in Oxfordshire. I have totally forgotten his bloody name BUT... The owner used to be on a forum i was on, he was really safe gave me some discounts on parts when they first started up so i rep'd the stickers. I buy the majority of my parts from Empire in America now or Flatland Fuel depending on what i want smile

Scott Summerhayes? Yeah he used to alright, the fames gone to his head now he thinks he's some underground villain. The scooter deals fucking hilarious, was in the shop the other day and they sell more scooters than bikes.

That's the guy! I thought it might have been a Scott lol. Yeah just a bit of a sell out owns a BMX store sells Scooters! What the ACTUAL fuck man. Not good, not good at all! If i had the sort of money to run a shop i would go full out Loot styley, BMX, BMX related products like DVDs & Clothing & NOTHING else!

Yep, he does do a few jams, but he isn't involved in them at all, he wanders about trying to look important.

Makes me think whats his agenda. If i had the money i would want to give back to the BMX community! Offer great parts at great prices & then good quality completes for the young-ens! Do the Jams & all that shit too. BMX is a lifestyle, BMX is i will say it for the majority of riders (At least on here) is their life & unfortunately not many of us have uber rich mummies & daddies to buy us a shop.

George French's setups are always interesting. I've noticed he always has a Front Brake like the ones on old school Road Bikes.

Do any of you remember his Tiger striped Bike with the Yorkshire BB, The Square Chainstays and the thing that pivoted by the top of the headtube for better Back Brake performance?

Now the Tiger frame was a bike haha. That thing was an absolute BEAST i think the frame alone weighed 9 or 10lbs!

6/16/2013 6:46 PM

That bike was awesome.

Linear cables suck for front brakes

6/16/2013 6:55 PM

They come with forks with mounts. Hell, most forks come with a hollow cap. If you're not getting new forks Tree makes 24 and 25 caps for front brakes.

This. But I recommend that you get new Forks so you can run 990 Brakes.
