Im getting a new frame in a month or so, and with most stuff I like to check out shit before I buy it. Im debating on if I should get a frame with out brake mounts or not and go brakeless. I dunno what to do, I do ride breaks now but I dunno what to do.

i mean get one with removable mounts or just ride with the brake tabs its not a big deal but the day you buy the one without any brake mounts will be the day you find some sick as trails that need brakes shit like that always happens

I have an S3 Aiken I ground the brake mounts off not only because I ride breakless but i also like a smooth looking frame. Seems that most of the new frames coming out have a removable brake system anyway so you would have a choice you could run brakeless : ) or you could ride with brakes : ( good luck!!!
