I bought a new, cheap and maybe nasty fixed gear bike. They were only in sizes 54cm and 56cm, so I had to go for 56cm, even though my road bike is 61cm and I'm 186cm. My first few skidding attempts today failed miserably, because I could not get my weight on the front wheel. I now removed all spacers and lifted my saddle a few inches.
Can I learn to skid if my front leg is below the steering bar when trying to lock my legs? How can I get my legs fixed to resist the pedal power?
Where should my front knee be located?
