    Just leave them on, you might want to run brakes in the future. If you cut them off now you will not beable to run brakes without buying a new frame.

    If you're worried about weight take a **** before you go riding.

    I cut mine because i had an older s&m stricker at the time with 990 mounts on the chain stays. it didnt do too well clearing 28T sprokets.

    Brakeless is a trend, if your doing it to be cool then dont bother

    I would only cut them off if you're absolutely sure you're getting a new frame soon.

    Conversely if you're absolutely sure you're getting a new frame soon, why waste time messing around with the one you've got? Just ride dude

    Also if you are getting a new frame and want to sell the old frame, you will have cut out a large number of potential buys by removing the brake bosses, cable guide e.t.c so may have to sell t for less money.
