    Just learned to skid!

    I've been riding fixed for about a month now...always had a front brake but usually relied on slowing down ahead of time rather than using the brake. I decided it was time to learn how to skid. I rode to a quiet little alley, got going, shifted my weight forward and locked my right leg.....a little hop and a satisfying skid. I tried it a few more times and even tried it locking my left leg. I was skidding at every red light all the way home. Big fun!

    Ok now get you a set of new tires you'll need em

    Skidding is fun. A reall good way to get good at it I found is to do it some grass, it's buttery.
