Hey FLIPPERS, go ahead and keep selling everything SE, GJS and Nomura to Thailand. Once it's gone it's NEVER coming back to the US.

It all depends on where you live and if you buy the bike as a complete or not,will determine a front brake.

I think you are right, I grew up in whats called the west side. no one and I mean NO ONE had a freestyle bike where I grew up.

now whats called the east side, Quick2 and where some others grew up , I think freestyle was the thing. but I never went to that
area , so what do I know lollollol

Us East Siders had front brakes.   We all WANTED them, even if we didn't have freestyle bikes.  My Goose and Race Inc both had fronts.  big_smile

Did the Race Inc have Race Inc forks? You drilled them?

always exceptions to every rule. of course I could never know the exact number, but I would guess 90-95% of racers bitd didnt have a front brake. or like garcia_58 above, he unhooked it cool

everything is ALWAYS up to the person. again me personally, dont like the look of a front brake, never have and never will.

No, Mongoose/Tange pinch forks.  Bought a frame only from Sterling Schwinn and moved over my parts.
