First of all, I tried doing some searching and didn't come up with anything.
I was riding around today with my photo gear bag on my back, just taking pictures and what not. Mind you, this is a small town with little traffic. Someone ran a red light and I panicked and just locked my legs up. I've never been able to skid, probably because I've never cared to try. I was barely out of my saddle and instead of skidding, something in my drivetrain slipped and made an awful noise.
It was so split second, that I wasn't sure what had happened, maybe my tires did skid. So I did it again on my way back to my apartment and heard the same thing.
I'm new to the fixed gear world and this is a 2 week old Schwinn Madison. Can anyone shed some light on the situation with without ridiculing the newb.
