    Finally got the skip action happening.

    i've been front brake dependent for the last year of riding fixed. skipping and skidding has seemed a recipe for disaster so far, but yesterday i was slowing down to a light standing up, did a little nose wheelie and heard a little chirp. tried it again. pretty soon i was able to slow really fast doing quick little unweights/pauses just skipping to a quick stop. suddenly the light came on that while i may never go brakeless i can now see how it's possible. i still can't skid much but after wiring the skipping i can see a solid skid coming next. towards the end of my ride i was doing a quick succesion of tiny skips where the wheel almost doesn't come off the ground just barely unweights. it was really cool and i'm psyched my skills took a step. fun stuff...
