    Please congratulate me!

    I am getting closer to going brakeless! I took my rear brakes off today! Of course it was only because a cable had snapped (and I'm too lazy and too cheap to buy another one), but either way I took it off.

    But now I have the gyro left on the bike, and it bangs around and makes an awful racket when I hit bumps in the road. I'm thinking I should take it off (not sure how though). And the brake lever is still on the bike (looks dumb just sitting there). I don't think I'll be able to take it off without taking the grip off first (NIGHTMARES RIGHT THERE! ) so I'm not sure what to do about it.

    Anyway, one down and one to go! Congratulate me!

    Just take off your brakes. Taking one grip off and putting it back on isn't very challenging.

    Yeah I guess it shouldn't be that hard so long as I use rubbing alcohol or something putting it back on.

    And btw I was asking you to congratulate me for removing a brake.
