Meanwhile, there are several ways riders try to relieve this gravity/balance problem. As the bike slows into that 3-to-0-mph zone, an aggressive pull on the front brake, while the feel of balance is still strong, looks rough but works. Others try the feet down, outrigger method, sliding their boots along the ground. Still others use the touch-and-go method, where they tippy-toe the bike to a stop. Some use the alternating flat-foot duck-walk scheme, applying pressure on the fall side once they sense some slight change in lean angle. Straight up and down is safe; leaning is dangerous.
