I've heard of Capitol Hill cops giving messengers tickets for it, though.
One of my knees is gone so my semi-sloping conversion has a handbrake now. But I rode a Spectrum track bike downtown for about 2 - 2 1/2 years without incident (no brakes no problem). I think it is a good idea to ride with a handbrake on road bike conversions because the BB is lower, and you don't get the radical evading capability of a trackbike.
