Looking into running just front 990's on my bike, i've been contemplating this for a while, as i like to use the brake for endo's, instead of using my shoes. also it's easier to do some front wheel tricks.

But is it safe to use daily?

or should i just get both?

Also, what are a good cheap sealed 3pc cranks, i was forced to sell my old eastern with a great set of profiles on it, and i doubt i can get them back.

having the back brake will give you more secure stopping but you dont necassarily need it

Eastern 720 are cheap ($75), 48 slined, similar to profiles and hold up surprisingly well

Plenty of people run front brakes only, just remember that it won't really help you in an emergency, so you should probably still ride your bike like it's brakeless.
