Words: Scott Sadil

“We used to call it a “brody.”
Performed on a bicycle, the trick was executed simply by standing up and locking your coaster brakes, turning the handlebars just so, and putting yourself into a two-wheel slide—sometimes to a stop, other times into a drifting, fish-tailing turn from which you suddenly accelerated, pedaling at a sprint. Brodies were cool—cooler still when performed, later in life, on a motorcycle, cooler yet in your parents’ nine-passenger family station wagon. Of course, this is essentially how you stop on a snowboard or pair
of skis—and today a “brody” is about all jet-ski enthusiasts do over and over again.”
