Here's my issue, I just got into fixed bikes and I have learned the basic track stand. However the only caveat is that when I'm a approaching a stoplight, I cannot ease into a track stand. This essentially, for me, defeats the whole purpose of track stands as I only find it useful so I don't have to step off the bike while waiting at a stoplight.
Does anyone have any advice or techniques that can maybe help me out? My gear ratio is 49-16
