I decided to take my chain off today, and see how I liked riding without it.
The spot I ride at is about half a mile from home, so it took a while to push with my foot to get there, but it wasn't too bad. I rolled up the bank there and rolled back out, the first time I just jumped off the back. The next time I tried to half cab out, and ate **** pretty well. Turns out I use pedal pressure a whole lot for half cabs, and when there's no hub to hook up, I smack into the bars and flip over.
I got a little better at it, not nearly as smooth as with the chain yet, but it's fun as hell to just roll along the road backwards without having any way of slowing down, and not having to backpedal.
Try it if you haven't.
