5-day a week, short-distance commuter cyclist, plus recreational cycling. Currently riding a 2012 Norco Heart (single-speed/fixie flip-flop). Usually I don't cycle during the winter, but I'm gearing up to try it this winter.

Interested more in the practical side of biking. I like learning to maintain, repair, and upgrade my bike on my own. I like riding single-speed because of the simplicity and connection to the terrain.

Thanks! This is the closest I've come to finding an alternative, though I still can't believe there's no company in North America making a similar product.

Posted a question about purchasing on the flipphandle facebook page, but haven't gotten a response yet. I'm really interested in a solution to this, so I'll continue to keep this up to date with what I find.

comment Rear wheel sliding/slipping on turns?
After a ride last night and my commute this morning, I can say that it was definitely the tire pressure. Thanks, everyone. Ironically, I recently shelled out for a slightly pricy hand pump because the gauge on my floor pump didn't work.

@DanielRHicks I might be pedalling into turns, but I've actually started taking really wide slow turns because of it. I do suspect it might be tire pressure though.

Thanks, I thought it might be the tire pressure, but the gauge on my pump is useless. I actually am always worried about the tire pressure because of this, but every pump I've ever bought the gauge hasn't worked, so I guess I should just shell out for a dedicated gauge. Bummer to have to carry something else though :\ Taking your advice, I really pumped the tires up before I left work today, and I was ok on my ride home, though it's only 4K. I'll be heading out for a ride later tonight to see if this solves it for sure.
