A few of my fixies have started to “slip” at the end of the string. When I throw, it seems like they roll down the string smoothly until the last inch or two, when it feels like little “thud.” Afterward, they don’t respond very well, making it hard to get nice stalls with neutral string tension for kick flips.
It’s happening with both my Legend Wing and EhKnown. I’m using YYE cotton type 10, newish but slightly broken in.
I’m wondering if it has to do with weather/humidity change? Seems to happen without and with the old burts bees on the string trick.
