I have Hayes MX-2 Mechanicals on my bike and I love them...well kind of. When I lock up my rear brake and try to skid on my pine straw driveway, the whole bike vibrates. I think the problem is about my weight...or lack there of. Do I need a tire with softer tread? I don't skid much, but when I do, its only in the woods by my house or in my driveway. Is this normal for disc brakes? On my old bike which had Vs, it didn't do this.

I know my explanation sucked, so please ask questions if you need to.

Thanks,
Andy

I thinks its the knobs. The bearings are fine. I'm planning on getting new tires anyway, because mine are getting pretty worn down.

Wait....if the wheel will wobble side to side, the bearings cause that, right? Thats what I assumed. And the hubs are pretty bad. They dont even have a brand on them! There are no markings on them that can be associated with any hubs on the internet. How do you spell generic? Ha, ha.
