We haven’t seen a panda move so quickly since the 2013 Liege-Bastogne-Liege

The panda and the pink rabbit escaped from the zoo, apparently – and according to Rimini-based bike brand Dafne Fixed, there’s a $100,000 reward.

We can’t help but feel we aren’t getting the full back story here.

What kind of a zoo houses pink rabbits? Did they work together to escape? Where did they get the bikes? Does the panda know Dan Martin?

None of these questions are answered, but we get to see some astonishing rear wheel slides.

You can find a few related videos on Dafne Fixed’s YouTube channel, plus all sorts of educational content, such as ‘how to skid over 12 cans of Red Bull’ and ‘how to make a fixed gear pit-stop in 45 seconds and finally get arrested by the police’.

Alex has written for more cricket publications than the rest of the road.cc team combined. Despite the apparent evidence of this picture, he doesn't especially like cake.

I had a slide way bigger than any of those yesterday morning on a roundabout on my commute. Much as it was exciting and a massive rush when I got it fully under control, I would not choose to do it again, especially with cars in much closer quarters.
They clearly have skillz, but what ARE they doing?!

Just what I was thinking, especially when they crossed the centreline and nearly got taken out at 1:02 :-S

Very skillful, but very dangerous. Such actions shouldn't happen in public roads.

I tried this nonsense when I first made my fixie but underestimated how hard it is to just lock the rear at will. In fact it's bloody hard. Must be some technique to it or something.

I gave it up as a bad job and swapped to single speed configuration instead.

You need to unweight the back wheel. Notice how far forward they lean to skid. On the plus side, it's actually easier with cheap (ungrippy) tyres.
