I'm quickly discovering that without the temptation or safety of brakes certain rolling tricks are actually a LOT easier, because I can focus on being spot-on with my balance point instead of deciding whether or not I should tap the brakes.
I dunno, the versatility of brakes are a real boon for certain moves, but I'm gonna force myself to ride this way for a while and get some tricks dialed before I put 'em back on.
