    What's the goal? Are you actually using the brake for street/park tricks? Or is it more like you want to be rear brakeless for barspins etc. ?

    My rear wheel came from a bike with misaligned dropouts I was trying to avoid the hassle of recentering the axle and redishing the wheel. I already did and now I wish I had a front brake for stopping power. Coming from 200mm front 180mm rear on my AM bike a single 160 with a bb7 caliper is pretty damn weak.
