Well, I took off my front brake off the Kilo TT bike friday and took it out for a 4 mile run. Whew, not even one close call, but I was being very cautious. It does seem to make you really look out farther, way farther than you would with a brake. It also made me more proud to be riding a track bike, my drops look much cooler without a brake lever and the fender/tire look is much cleaner. I'm going to try it out a few more times to see if I want to fully make the jump. I am not able to skid or skip yet, and probally should learn that first before I go brakeless. I also am running a 48x16, which is too high for me in hilly Southside. Gonna change it to a 40x15. Will have a 16t freewheel for the extra steep hills. The hills are also what I am not sure about without brakes.
