From what i hear gyros aren't strong and people are always breaking the wires and its too much of a problem to keep fixing if you brake the wires and with 1 brake you can barspin or x up instead of having 2 brake wires...i took my front brake off

no brakes makes the movements more flowing, its not just to save weight

or some street riders dont like setting there brakes everey month or so

yea brakes are and always have been a pain for me...i know thats because i don't know much about set up for them but really i don't want to spend the time learning...i feel more comfortable with being brakeless out on the streets.

i can see how you can do tailtaps, footjam fufanos and those canadian footjams w/o brakes, but i cant see how you can do a fufano w/o any of those. what can you fufano and how long do you actually stay on there?

When I get some money, I'll be rocking the 2 brakes and a gyro. At the moment I'm only with a back brake. 4 pegs 2 brakes and a gyro opens up a lot of new stuff.

I've never tried fufs or abubacas w/o brakes...seems impossible. You must have balance like a circus freak, Infantry :D .

ok well have you seen the animal video?
Vic's part...he does a brakeless fuf in there.

it took me around 1 and a half years to learn fufanu's without brakes because of the balance...i would think that i have them down pretty consistant...i learned abubaca's only about in June i would say.

Hmmm, I need to watch more videos. It seems like I might have seen one in a Ride BMX photo somewhere though....Props on the brakeless fufs, Infantry.
