When I use my rear brake on slick roads, dirt, or gravel, my rear wheel skids quite a bit. This happens when I countersteer my body to the left (bike to the right) and hit the rear brake, which makes the rear end slide to the left. It looks similar to this:
Oh, okay, you made it seem like it happens just about every time you touch it when on a normal road or bike path. Ya, its happened to me while on dirt, didn't realize it correlated with me pulling the back brake but usually im very slow and cautious when on dirt so it isn't too scary. By the way is that on a fixie or multiple geared with disc/rim brakes?
I have another question to ask. The bike community is massive, much bigger than the audiophile community. So why is information in the biking world, and reviews missing or very hard to find on the internet? I can't find any multi item review/comparisons comparing road tires, or tubes, or chains, or just about every item every biker has purchased. Its hard to decide what products to buy, and a lot of it is probably because everyone is buying from their LBS. But, my LBS for instance only carries Bontrager tubes and tires, which i can't really find any solid reviews of online. How do i know my tubes or tires are going to have good price to performance ratio. I've tried going around bike forums, but i haven't them them generally being much help.
Edit: Oh, and that GIF is super cool haha.
