errr..are they hitting the spokes or the tire? i think you should look for some road brakes or someting that have tons of adjustment. or maybe just put one on the front? thats where its the most usefull..and it doesnt wear out your tire if u have to slam on it (stupid skaters :roll: )

WTF r u onnabout

do not put a stupid brake on the front that an appauling idea, to solve ure problem u gotta buy a different tipe brake to wot u go i had one with straight arms once and i got the same problem as u so i went and got a brake with more curve in the arms and that sorted it (BUT DONT RIDE A BMX WITH A FRONT BRAKE UNLESS U DO FLATLAND) Mkay! :D

why cant you ride without front brakes? the only place i can see them a little useless is dirt jumping. but who here rides completly dirt? everybody rides a little bit of street and some ramps.

haha they are massive..im going to buy some poverty or maybe some terrible ones small..small bars own! and why arnt front brakes terrible? notice how alot of cars come with disc front and drum back? and why do trials riders have discs in the front and hs33 in back? cause rear brake power is not needed as much. all of the power is up front..IMHO
