    because they are easy to setup and tuff. V-brakes are weak and chunky, and from funfanu's, you will bend or break the arms so weak.

    dude ur a moron, you will not break v brake arms doing a fufuanu on a 20" bike. First of all, ive only ridden v's for trials, trials has a million times more stress than bmx, and 26" wheels cause a ton more leverage than 20". i would love to see a 20" street frame set up for v's, i can guarentee i can rock that frame and never have a prob w/ the brakes

    All I know are bmxers aren't whiney little douches like most trials riders, and they don't give 2 shits about their bike while riding 482004229 more impressive things than anyone who stepped on a trials bike- all with shitty brakes and no helmet.

    V-brakes stick out more and thus are more prone to breaking.

    plus you don't need brakes on a BMX at all if you are good. i need them because i am not very good yet.

    Kind of funny that in a topic where trials riders are laughing at bmxers for knowing nothing, trials riders make themselves look like idiots for knowing nothing themselves.

    There a bunch of reasons why bmxers wont use v brakes. Go out and click a lookback on a bmx with a set of Vs on. Have fun getting the brake out of your pantleg before you land. That is a lot of the reason why they won't be used. They get in the way. It is the same reason a lot of guys won't run front brakes or brakes at all. Depending on which way you turndown or if you do it both ways it is quite easy to stuff the lever into your pants. Thats not too fun 10 feet out of a 12 foot vert ramp.

    Go ride a bmx of a dude who does a lot of brake tricks. I would bet most of you would wonder what is wrong with your setup. You can set them up to be stupidly grabby or awesome modulation. For those with shitty brakes you don't really need the brakes like you do in trials. In fact you flat out don't want it 95% of the time.

    But ya. Thanks to everyone who thinks they do it because they are trying to be hard core. Made my day.

    When I decided to post you hadn't posted yet. Due to your 3 sentences vs. my 224 you beat me to it.

    And for the record I never mentioned what you did and I don't even fully agree with the prone to breaking thing. Sure its a reason but tiny.

    i was being totally serious that bmxers dont run brakes because it makes them hardcore... completely 100% serious.
