    No, skidding will not break your hub; nor should it break any other part of your wheel except your tire. Brake pads are cheaper and last longer.

    edit: to address posts below...yes it could break the hub. Anything could happen, but skidding is probably less likely to damage a non-defective properly installed hub than other types of abusive riding (jumping, wall-riding, etc).

    Not unless you did something wrong.

    But yeah, as mihlbach said, pads are cheaper, last longer, and stop better.

    It's possible to break anything by doing anything too much. Nothing lasts forever, except the herp. That **** stays with you till you die.

    yer mom does, that hoe
    “When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark,
    When work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having,
    Just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road,
    Without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.”
