They won't really handle hard fufs and tail-taps.

Yea, I know a fella that runs them on his front as he has no mounts. He mentioned kind of what Bob did, that they don't take abuse well.....and you have to adjust them a lot. I think I will just spring the extra $40 or so for a new set of forks if I want to go front brake. Right now my right foot is having tooooo much fun to do that though :)

um yea

yea, after some good riding - decent gaps and grinds - the plate tends to get a little crooked causing it to rub the tire.

And those aren't even tricks that involve braking.
