    descents

    When I go downhill, even on slopes which are not steep I feel my rear tire skip sideway alot. Is this normal or is there something I've done wrong?

    that is the result of locking the rear brakes that is why the real wheel tends to hop around so much try to know the lock up point of your brake so that you'll know how hard you can pull on the lever without locking the rear wheel.
