    how do you brake ?

    I usually hang out at other forums around here, this is the first time I come here, and I see all these bikes that have no brakes. How in the hell do you brake ?

    legs bro

    edit: you should research what a fixed gear bicycle is, so you understand the mechanics.

    I tried the old school method of gloving the front wheel yesterday, it worked surprisingly well. You reach under the handlebar and brace the top of your forearm against it, then push down flat handed on the top of the tire. I did a slow controlled slowing, I would not recommend it for anything else unless you are proficient at it.

    I usually just jump off my bike and let it keep going until it eventually hits something or falls over on its own.

    For me breaking has usually been a result of falling off of my bike. I have broken my collarbone twice and recently broke both elbows.

    Brakeing is completely different. It's over rated because all it does is slow you down.

    Typically by squeezing those funky little levers that come off my handlebars.
