Singlespeed & Fixed Gear

Backwards wheel spin on skid?

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

...you're skidding as long as the rear wheel isn't going the same speed as the front regardless of direction

just don't pedal backwards
