Everybody who says brakes are for ****ies/you don't need brakes needs to ride some of our trails.

Word.

And get Odyssey brakes. I have second-hand evolvers and they kick ass. Best springs brakes ever. I had Primo's before and they were terrible.

Also: MOSH BRAKE PADS SUCK. I just got a set and they are terrible. Get eagles or stick with your stock Ody pads.

Honestly I said that just to say it, I prefer brakeless but I don't care if everyone else does. and for the record, our huge skate park at the forks, one of the biggest in the world gets very crowded sometimes and I ride it brakeless almost everyday in the summer. I also ride at some fairly big trail spots, and another smaller skatepark that gets very crowded sometimes.
