Yea, you can stop really fast by doing that.. I know a kid who stops brakeless without takign his feet of the pedals.. just reaches over with his foot. I ride a fixed gear bike too and you just stop by backpedling on one of those.. its awesome.

You can also jam a metal pipe into your front rim (but you may fall).

Let this be a warning powersliding brakeless is hard remeber if u have one foot in the back wheel u need the other to be free if u put to much lean into it that means unless ur standing on the back tire ur goin to bail and its not goin to be fun ... its not impossible to do and its actaully pretty fun but dont try it unless u realize what ur doin i have a couple scars from my stupidity
