i rode my bike for a year with just front brakes, i went all through last winter with just front brakes, the snow and anything slippery was scary because i had to go completely straight while braking,
i recently put on some rear brakes, so this winter will be better, i actually put rear brakes on yesterday,
i'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy,
