Tomorrow is the first day without brakes (brake-caliper-less for you WK)! I dropped from a 48-16 to a 42-17 to make it easier to stop (and so I'm not tempted to go too fast). I'll have to but the brake back on for the LifeCycle ride because of their rules, but I'm free falling until then.
I know there have been random posts about going brakeless, but do you have any tips, hints, etc. for someone riding without brakes for the first time?
