hope you're planning on foot retention of some sort, if you plan on remaining brakeless.

He does say it's a "Track" bike, meaning that he can't have brakes...

However, should he be using it on the road, and I'd guess not with a gear in the 80's, I'd always use at least a front brake. With a gear that large though, Physics say that it's going to be very difficult to come to any kind of a rapid stop.

Regarding gears, I use a 63/4", but a very experienced friend of mine, when she was racing, would use a 56" fixed wheel.
I'd stay decal- less :)

..or, get a new front rim. That one is showing signs of brake wear, and yet - no brake???
