first time on fixed gear please help~!!!
I just bought used specialized langster comp
it comes with freewheel and fixed gear
thing is if I changed to fixed, howcome it's super hard to stop the wheel??
If I put my weight on the crank so I can stop body whole body get lifted, because of pedal's momentum.
nothing like video clip I saw, I cant skid anything like that. it take likes 10 sec for me to stop the bike why is that??
is there anything I have to change?? please help thank you

Searching the SS/FG forum will provide you with lots of info on how to skid:
This forum tries to be about cycling on velodromes.
You should never skid on a velodrome

be careful dude, I got nothin against kids learnin to ride fixed but dont jump into traffic or big hills right away without brakes or you'll just be another statistic
