Title basically sums it up, I wanna learn how to skid. I currently dont have pedal straps so that might be an issue. Any tips would be appreciated

1. Put your nuts on the stem.
2. Extend dominant leg backwards.
3. Buy new tire.

But seriously, it just takes practice, timing is a big part.

It takes a bit for the lifting leg to come around. It's a strange motion for a muscle group that is used to pushing weight not pulling it. I just ride as usual and toss a skid in when needed or wanted. Saves the legs
