    Looking for some feedback.I noticed that I can skid easier,even seated,on my fixed Se Stout 29er than on my Schwinn conversion,on pavement.I thought the Stout's 29x2.1 Nano Rapters would be much harder to skid than the 700x35 Specialized nimbus sports on my Schwinn.I really have to unload the rear tire to break traction and I can stay seated on the Stout.The Stout's gearing is 32x17 and the Schwinn's is 52x20,if that means anything.Any thoughts.

    Its the gearing. 52x20 is much higher than 32x17.

    Now that tha's been cleared up... I fuckin love doing skids on a MTB on singletrack trails, and noticed I got som much better at it when i switched to fixed. Fixed on singletrack = 2 wheel drifts and mad skidzz yo.
    But i should really just use my mtb for that.
