fixed - rear wheel locks
Hey, I converted a bike this summer to be a fixie, and it's having a problem (I think). Sometimes when I stop, the rear wheel is locked in place when I try to go again. It moves after I give it a little push, but it's a little disconcerting. I have a front brake that I use a lot. I don't skid, I only backpedal. I really don't know much at all about bike mechanics, so if you need more info, please be very specific and dumb your questions down a lot!!
Thanks a lot! This is my main commuter and I don't want to ruin it!
