Riding the Undersides of the Pedals--Part Three of Fixed Gear 101
by Greg Goode
Dismounting and trackstands are easier to learn if you are not clipped in. You will fall less. It helps if you can ride the undersides of the pedals, leaving the clips facing the ground. The clips might scrape the ground if your bottom bracket is low and your cranks are long. On a true track bike, this won't be an issue--these bikes are built to keep your pedals off the ground. If your clips do scrape while approaching the ground, try bending them into a flatter position.
