Just jam your foot in the back wheel, easiest way..

ive been learning how to skid but its verry difficult. the kids i see doing it have excellent bike control and the surfaces r smooth on the most part. just go fast n skid that tire sideways like drifting. maybe practice in dirt

Put your feet on the ground or jam your foot in the space between your frame and rear tire.

If all goes wrong and you can't stop , ghost your bike.

Learn to work on your brakes. Seriously, it's not that hard once you get it.

Riding brakeless does nothing but limit your tricks and limit the spots you can ride.

It's expensive? Seriously? I have spent a total of about £20 on my back brake since I started riding 2 years ago.

Just don't stop. I ride in the grass and stuff. Learn to limit your speed. I do it, you can too. Haha if i am going super quick i just put my foot down and walk it slow. haha it isnt hard at all. I run brakes sometimes and they really arent hard at all to work on. Just learn to. Plenty of good how tos out there.

Your cable should be long enough that it will allow you to do it and still work, if not get a gyro?

$50 says you can't bar or whip.

You'll learn how to work on brakes if you just sit down and think about them. You'll DEFINITELY learn about brakes much faster than you'll learn bars or whips.

If you have a hard time riding brakeless, don't ride brakeless. And there's this new invention that just came out called a 'gyro'.. look that shit up.

If there's grass nearby, I'll usually utilize that to at least slow down a little, then dragging the feet (around the toe or sides of the shoe where it doesn't matter as much is what I usually do)

As far as the kick out, it took me a while to perfect it, but basically carve one way super hard, then lean away from the carve (with your weight over the front) and kick out the back wheel a little. You have to pick up your back-end a little, that's what takes a while to feel out, usually at first you end up completely pick up your back wheel, then it hits the ground at a weird angle, it's all about leaning forward/picking up just enough so that your back wheel slides across the ground.

If you don't know how to stop without brakes, you aren't ready to ride without brakes. And if you think you can't do bars and whips with brakes, 1. Look up Chris Doyle, and 2. You definantly can't bar or whip.

I now have a more or less stock sunday scout with a complete Demo rear wheel. Sue me

Do a moto whip without lifting up, it will cause your rear tire to slide and slow you down a bit. I recommend going in grass or something as well. It will slow you down a lot!

Do NOT put your foot on your tire. That way you damage your tire AND your shoe. Just put your feet on the ground.
