Yeah, I don't run brakes either. It makes you commit more, so you don't p*ssy out of jumps when you ride dirt.

well if you got brakes, try not using them and see how you are doing :) That there are brakes on your bike, doesn't mean you have to use them.
and oibmx got a point about needing to take your speed down.

brakes are for the weak unless there is a tree behind the jump, but then you can make it into a tree ride

if it gives u too much speed, then u might actually need brakes or low jump really really good,

i like ppl to have jumps at my trials becuase....
there is one spot all the trails end at, and on the side of my trials is a little one foot wide pathways where u ride ur bike back to the starting ramp, or ride on if u mess up and cant hit next jumps in pack, so its nice to have brakes, cause then u dont have to wait for that side trail to be clear of ppl that u might run into if u land at full speed but want to turn off to the side, cuase if u have brakes, u can just pull them and stop withought going onto the side path

then on the other hand, if u land and **** up, u can pull ur brakes instead of crashing into the next u jump which ur handlebars or pegs or pedals or arm or whatever crashes into and ripps of half the jumps lip

then say there is someone that runs in the way and ****s u up, then u can slamm on the brakes b4 u hit the jump when if u dont got brakes u might crash into sumthing, cuase slowing ur bike down takes a lot longer w/o brakes


overall, brakes arent *needed* but they make things easier in emergencies

doesn't really mean anyone is weak because they ride brakes...its just bike setup.

anyways rich i don't run brakes and i can manual pretty good i guess...i never have used brakes infact i can't manual worth shit while trying to use them...thats why its always weird to me to see pros manualing with brakes in videos...thats just me.

um im pretty sure its safe to say everyone here is afraid to crash... cuase that usually means bent rims or handle bars jamming into your abdomen

um i think brakes are pretty much almost necessary when riding park... around my area at least, cuase parks are always full of noobs who get in the way and pop out of no where and shit

So just do what I do at parks, just keep going. Run the "noob" off, don't let him run you off. The only exceptions I make are the little kids. I mean, if you're at least a teenager, I'll run into you for all I care.

I don't see the big deal with brakes. If you need to stop that bad, just jam your toe into the tire. . .

can't really be safe in saying that...i bet there is a number of people in here that could care less if they crash...like me...just learn from the mistakes...obviously it is going to hurt but you can't be riding around all afraid to crash.

i more or less meant the penelties from crashing i.e. there is a higher chance of u braking a rib crashing then their is of u landing correctly, which i highly highly doubt would happen ever... unless u land really rally crappily, if i wasnt scared of crashing, i wouldve been completely ****ed ove rby now, legs broke and shit, and my bike would be demolished beyond ridablity

and about running the noobs off, sometimes they drop in from a q-pipe or sumthing and had the right of way, but u didnt see them and went cuas ethey wa sin a blindpot of yours or sumthing

I'm getting a front brake soon but I don't have a back or front now. It's not that bad. I've just racked myself once or twice trying to stop real fast landing weird on a hip and heading towards the woods.
