Nope. Front brake only w/new pads. Rear is just a modified 6 spd rear set up as fixed gear. Front derailleur screws set to hold chain in the middle ring. 3rd smallest rear sprocket used in the rear. Very straight chain line and works in flat riding Fort Collins. Used place did all this. I just different bars on it. Pulled an updated brake lever out from my spare box. Put new housing & cable on it plus new pads. Had some new grips in the box too. We all ride Moto style brakes, that's all she's ever known. Stops well enough and reinforces using the front brake. If you look there are posts for the rear and a funky roller wheel for the cable to angle down. I could put rear brakes and a shifters if I wanted too. 2 places here have all the used parts I could ever need, but it works as is. I ride it too. It's kinda BMX fun.
