    As quickly as possible.



    To that end, I use a front brake and will use this and sometimes combine that with a skip stop.

    my favourite method of stopping is skidding because its fun, however I usually use my front brake as it is practical
    Cycle instead

    Skipping is so gnarly.

    Stop when you're where you need to be, otherwise evade.

    I ride a non track geo fixie and I have to get my nuts pretty close to the stem to skid, it's not crazy leaning over the bars nuts to stem skid recordz though.
