Or straps. Im switching from clips to straps. I think the shoes are just too inconvenient for certain people's styles of riding

If you made this thread in 2006 you would probably get more help.

To master a proper skid, you must start when you're very young....

Michael, since you asked, check out my wheels!

I've got bad news, I stripped my hub and when I skid I'm slipping a lot. If anyone has an extra wheel with a flip flop hub, i would for sure buy on friday.

dump the clips for straps. 165 cranks. slick rear cheap tires. 120+ psi in the rear. that's all the tips I can give.. oh! ride your bike and have fun. your only young ones.

Why such a high psi?

Line the rim with flintstones on the outside and make a skid of spectacular drifting sparks.

Save the tires, skid on bare rims.

is the hub stripped or did the cog just come loose? When I first started skidding my cog would slip form time to time. I had a cheap chain whip at the time and it would only get so tight. With a good chain whip and sturdy lock ring tool you will save yourself a lot of hassels.
