Well, I was making my bike lighter...
Took my kick stand off, removed things I don't need and such.
Then I was looking at my brakes, tryed to fix my back ones, make them tighter and what not. Then I went to my front ones, turned the bolt on it and snap, the damn thing broke off. So I took my front brakes completely off. Then I was trying to get the actually brake lever off... I couldnt get my grip off, to slide the lever off, and I just broke my lever. Now I CAN'T go back to front brakes. I decided I will only ride street now on, and any flat I can do with no brakes that is easy. I wanted to know if it was a good thing, breaking my brake or not and removing it. And what are some tricks that I can start trying for street. And what are things to look for in town to ride on and stuff, because I have a small town and it is hard to find things, if I know what to look for, it would make it easier. Any good street websites would be more than welcome also. Thanks in advance!

You can always find something to ride. Just look and use your imagination. Try riding things that you never thought of before. There's no limit on riding, just make it up as you go. And have fun.

i think the rear brake is the only one you really use so i dont see why you would keep the front.
