    Front Brakes Only Single Speed Trend

    Has anyone else noticed the phenomenon that is people riding single speed bikes with just a front break? This makes sense when you're on a track bike but not a bike with a freewheel. Craziness.

    I let my child ride a coaster brake with no hand brakes. I should be in jail.

    It's silly, sure. Sillier than riding fixed with no brakes (like me)? Not even close.

    Dude, I seriously don't understand that nonsense. Using your foot and using a brake to stop is like the exact same thing. Except one is ********.
