You push the tip of your shoe into the tyre/rear wheel behind the seat at the seat stay bridge. I'm sure there are video tutorials on Youtube.

you can kick out your back end so it slides/skids a bit. it doesnt really make you stop though just slows you down a bit. or you can do as they said which seems to be the most effective way. also try sitting down and taking your feet of the pedals and stomping the ground to slow down/stop. basically do whatever works for ya

I'm on the vital legit list!

stomping is best, saves your shoes/tire as long as you dont drag your foot after. Another good way to slow down is to ride on grass.

You can always buy new shoes and tires. you cant buy a new Ass if you get hit.

That is also true.... I guess the tip is.... Don't ride breakless unless you have practiced stopping methods.

Theres this thing called the face grind where you stop yourself by grinding your face across something........or you could be smart and put brakes back on and gain some bike control

Yeah i know for me that was the point haha when ever i stopped and had enough speed i would do a half ass fj tail whip or i would go flat land and just start kicking the front tire to move

I just jab my foot into the rear tire. It seems to work the best.

Why be the same when you can be different?

Riding in grass seems to help me slow down a lot and if you put your feet down in grass it won't wear out your grip. Any of the suggestions above will help too.

I usually try not to go too fast, but to stop I try to stomp on the ground or ride through grass, and if I need to I put my foot in my back tire. I don't like destroying my shoes or tires tho
