• Jonathan Ciaccio
Skidding on a fixed gear bike is not as difficult as it may seem. With a little practice, you can master the art of skidding and use it to your advantage when riding.
There are two main types of skidding: front skidding and rear skidding. Front skidding is when you apply the brakes and shift your weight forward, causing the front wheel to skid. Rear skidding is when you pedaling backwards and apply the brakes, causing the rear wheel to skid.
Both types of skidding have their own benefits and drawbacks. Front skidding is great for slowing down quickly or coming to a stop, but it can be difficult to control. Rear skidding is easier to control, but it can be difficult to get started again after you’ve stopped.
With a little practice, you can learn to control your skidding and use it to your advantage. Skidding can be a great way to slow down or stop, and it can also be used to help you turn corners.
So, if you’re ready to master the art of skidding, grab your bike and get out there and practice!For many cyclists, skidding is a skill that is both exhilarating and intimidating.
