But unfortunately you didn't provide any information on what your current brake set up is, so we can't even establish a starting point to improve on.
So, do you have a gyro or straight cable? Chrome rims? What kind of brake are you running? Is it set up properly? How much do you weigh? That will give us a start.
The short answer is to get some Koolstop salmon pads and adjust everything properly.

Kool Stop pads are really nice they work good with the evolver U brakes and chrome rims

Not everyone wants to go brakeless. Of course, this guy doesn't want working brakes, or he would have posted again.
