Anonymous said: can you put a video of how quickly you can stop (with out brakes) ? (over what distance) always scared of going brakeless but so many people do it i'm sure it's just as effective as brakes?

You can’t compare with or without brakes like that. If you are scared of riding brake less, that is a good sign. It means that when you finally do ride without brakes you will be careful, which means you will be safer. Try moving your brake lever so that it is not in the usual place and then try not to pull your brake. If you do this, then gradually you can become non dependent on your brake caliper… then you will be riding brake less.
