    my roomate did this for a few months, i'm pretty sure out of pure laziness. he said he didn't want to buy a brake. the idiot is fine, but his shoe collection is pretty beat. he finally got a coaster brake wheel a few months ago, and now he goes through tires a little slower.

    Yeah, like everyone else said, this is really late. Me and a friend tried ted shredding it down some hills one night when we were bored. And than I got to thinking, it's a pretty stupid idea in the city of SF where hills are ruthless. But to each his own, coaster brakes are way more fun than sliding your shoe over the back tire. But yeah, I agree that the brakes debate has gotten overly redundant, but it's ironic because this exact thread is redundant too.

    That other video is nice though, reminds me of Kevin Bacon...

    i think skidding like ted shred is a skill every fixed rider should have at their disposal. you never know, its a great e-brake.

    disclaimer: I know the "this is the jam" dude.

    i liked how he said in the vid re: his music influences that "this was before hip hop..." in other words, he wasn't inspired by hip hop derived artists, rather, he came up with scratching completely on his own. a little bold methinks...

    no he was saying he heard a mash up before people were spinning mashups, so that's why he does them so much. he's not saying anything about scratching and he's not even saying he came up with it, just that he heard it happen by chance before people started doing it on purpose. he says nothing about starting before anyone else did.

    i've never tried it, maybe i should. but it strikes me as a bit harder on a fix than with a freewheel. with a fix you're going to have to initiate a skid as soon as you put your foot to the rear tire - otherwise, i think it would be pretty hard to stay on the bike with your right foot on the rear the wheel trying to stop it and your left foot pushing your body up and down since the crank is still moving.

    it would take some practice.
    the hipster myth.

    i practice vagabondery.

    I agree with 128 about the Ted-skid being an important skill. I rode brakeless for a month or so, until the ****ty chainline on my old Crosscheck resulted in a dropped chain on one of Phoenix's very few real hills. I thought I was a goner until I remembered seeing the video of Ted skidding at some race or another. It slowed me down enough that, when the chain finally rotafixed around the cog and locked the rear wheel, the resulting fall was not too bad.
