I have a 08 verde theory I bought it used but it didnt even have a scratch on it. Anyways I was messing around today and noticed that the chain rubs on the brake U arm. Is that normal? Also I want to put front brakes on it. I do not know what route to go with that. I was watching people today at a park they all had front brakes and were doing like stoppies on the ramps and stuff and looks really cool to me anyways any help and much appreciated! Thanks allot
JR!

It is not scratchless anymore I think the handle bars are even bent a little haha I have been learning real hard the last few weeks.

Any brand of brakes that I should be looking at more then others? Like I was saying I am really new to BMX.

actually when people know how to use them front brakes are sick. watching my friend nosepick a spine is probably one of my favorite things in BMX.

if you want front brakes get some forks with brake mounts or they're gonna suck ass and not be worth it.
