Indeed, a very "hot" bike if you could say so.

Although angle grind the brake guides/mounts and it will be about finished.

haha yeah... started off as an addict in the summer 2007.
Just started building it up and buying parts as i needed them.
Latest purchase is the frame.
I love it, it has come a long way... i like to think i have too :D

...but im keeping the brake mounts in case i change my mind on the whole brakeless thing

In 25+ years of riding I have rode brakeless, 2 brakes, front only and rear only.

I have too many tricks that require brakes to take them off. And if you can manual without them, throw some on...feathering makes a long manual even farther. Plus the issue of stallin on stuff 10ft plus up...to me doing it with a foot looks bad, and is alot harder with brakes.
