    Great lookin' ride!

    Why move the rear brake? More clearance for the rack and stuff? Bling?

    No front brakes?

    Looks cool!
    Also wondering why you moved the rear brake.
    You know that brake is going to trash the white rim, right?
    Also, if you are only going to run one brake, it should be the front wheel. Weight shifts to the front when stopping so your front wheel has the most traction and stopping power.
    I ran a single FRONT disc brake on my single speed that I built up... stopped on a dime.

    i'm a bmx kid... not a fan of front brakes... besides drifting around corners is fun... i rip through tires

    and yea i know the whites gunna get messed up but i dont care.

    the brake underneath is from when i used to run brakes on my bmx bike... mosy companies run 990 mounts under the seatstays so they are out of the way.

    if i had my way this bike would be brakeless like my bmx

    these wheels are strong too... considering i jump it every chance i get. ( and there's a skatepark enroute to my shop )
