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.

Re: ok lets have a vote

depends on year of bike. say a 70's it looks wright at home.
lots of kids ran them then. how many used them during a race no clue.
some 80's bikes still showed up at tracks with them. but way less than the 70's
by 90's almost no one ran a front brake. unless they used the bike for more than just BMX track racing.

Nope. It was against the rules at the track to have a front brake.
