Sure, just grab a handful of rear brake.
Hook your foot under the front pedal.
I've seen it done, but never tried it myself.
yeah, you just gotta put a more than usual amount of weight over your handlebars and really press with your rear foot. If you're thinking about going strapless with no brake it's a bad idea 'cause it takes more time and prep. But, it's not my front teeth so what the hell, go for it.
uh if you lean forward enough its easy
well i'm just curious. I don't plan on doing it (i love the feeling of straps way too much) It's just, I ordered an IRO and forgot to order the pedals so I'm going to have to use my dad's old strapless pedals for a while.
obviously the gearing you run would play a role in how easy it would be to skid without foot retention... but I'd just go with frank's advice (see post #7).
yea. i wouldn't count on doing it, but it's not hard.
it's actually easier to one-footed skid with no straps. lean forward till your dick is crushed by the stem, stick your front foot out and lock your back leg up.
It can be done, but you have to get so far forward, in my experience, that it's not a reliable stopping method.
It's easy. Just kick you front leg forward like you were doing a leg over but do it under the bar and it makes strapless skidding pretty easy and you'll stop quicker than you'd think. Just be careful as it takes a bit more strength from the trailing leg.
yes. lots of force on pushing leg. lean really far forward and lock other leg to bars.
or drag your foot on your back tire
i dont have straps and havent been riding very long but i've learned to skid without them. not at really high speeds or anything and i find my left leg (not my main one) has hardly any pressure on the pedals. obviously i have to work on it, but like i said, i haven't been riding long. it's possible though d:
yes its possible, i do it all the time
u just need some strong legs balls of steel and ur good
ps, OP, weve got the same username basically....

"Unfortunately, prohibitively expensive bicycles don't just come up to you and place themselves between your legs like friendly dogs or people with low self-esteem. You've got to purchase them with money--like pedigree dogs or people with low self-esteem who have turned to prostitution."
yes ... u just have to lean WAYYYY forward
