hmmm I have always rode brakeless except when i first got a freecoaster when i started and realized pedal pressure would rape me if i couldnt use it. haha when i rode brakes, they never worked right, when they did work i kept pussying out haha so brakeless it is. I love pogo-ing around with breaks, i like brake tricks, i like having the power to stop. The main reason i dont have breaks really is because i am straight up breakless, i know how many cranks i need to get to one point without being a pussy and sticking my foot in the tire, or putting my feet down. Obviously i cant go straight down a hill until im sure there are no cars coming, but thats fine. haha

Disc brakes have already started showing up, BMC made a Carbon race frame with a disc brake.

Price wise, a standard Mechanical disc is similar pricing, a set of Avid BB5s (decent for a basic disc) is about 50 bucks, on par with most decent BMX 990s.

Weight-wise, they might be a touch heavier, but they work a LOT better.

I can see them becoming a staple in trails and racing, but not freestyle.

They really aren't any more complicated than a standard 990, with more adjustability.

I run brakes because tricks are alot easier with brakes ( like tailwhips, no footers, 360, tire taps) and in my opinion a bmx bike looks better if it has a brake.

Bmx is all about looking cool or steezy if u r harry main and u can not tell me that riding brakes is steezier than brakeless. U become alot smooter brakeless so seriously brakeless isnt stupid and no shit u should ride pedals but that has nothing to do with this subject

Firstly, personal preference.
Most trails riders have more style without doing any tricks than any Park or street rider. But it isn't whether or not they have a brake that gives them style.

Secondly, 9 years! 9 long years! Pretty sure that guy isn't going to read or care about your reply.
Please don't bump old threads, unless you're bringing something new to the party (which in this case you're not)

Ok hang on when I put the first bit I didnt realise it was 9 years old and yh it is preference and yh if u ride trails u should probably ride brakes and yh people do have style doing that but your opion on dirt riders having more style than park and street is your opion and that isnt mine I also belive that all riders have a extra element of syle without the brakes not to say u cant have style with brakes

Is it? i thought it was just about having fun and enjoying yourself, silly me, i must try harder to impress the scooter kids at the skatepark, I didn't realise i had an obligation to be stylish....should i wear girls stretchy jeans like all the BMX emo kids as well?

Fuck that....and doesn't Harry ride a Brake?
there's also a vid done by vital about best front brake riders, quite a few of them are "steezy" as you call it

That statement is the most false shit I've seen makes me think you are compensating... but on topic I have rode both, I ride brakes but that's only cause it's my main transportation so I got brakes to save my shoes lol but if you only use your bike for park then I would say brakeless

So we have the weight weenies. Brakes make my bike heavier. Wah wah wah. If you can't perform because of the minuscule weight difference between brakes and brakeless... Idk what to tell you.

Then you get the brakes are for pussies guys. Stopping when you feel like it with two fingers is for pussies. Obviously foot dragging, foot jamming and sliding are superior. If you're gonna bitch on a gap it's not because you have brakes on. You can still bitch out brakeless.. I seent it.

Then you get the it looks cleaner without brakes guys. That's up for debate. Yes maybe to some it does look "cleaner" I don't know their definition of cleaner is? Can't really argue somebody's personal preference. Everyone has their own.

Then we come to the flow better guys. Christ, my lord and savior. How ever will i flow with my brake installed on my bike? How will i ever roll and string tricks together without depressing my brake lever? I don't think that's even possible.

It really doesn't matter what you ride as long as you're happy doing it.

Brakeless looks better and is definitely easier to run without having to hassle with the brakes, but brakes is 100 percentent safer and more useful

Lol Mike Aitken is my response for anyone saying it makes you flow better. Chase Hawk used to run a brake and flowed SO well.

Jeezus i had to read that 5 times, are you allergic to even a tiny bit of punctuation?

you said "Bmx is all about looking cool or steezy if u r harry main" which to me sounded like you think Harry's steezy, otherwise why would you drop his name out of the blue like that? either that or the lack of punctuation makes it come across that way.

and the "everything looks better faster" statement is just daft as a brakeless bike isn't any faster than a bike with brakes.


BMX....the only 2 wheeled sport (aside from those road riding-spandex gimps that think their Lance Armstrong) where people will argue not having the ability to stop makes you better/faster/more aware\better in bed etc etc
