Strange Heavy Braking Issue
Not quite sure how you would label this.
Anyways, last night I was heading home from a friend's house about 9:30. Some college kid thought it would be a great idea to pull out in front of me and slam on his brakes and I nearly had to lay it down or eat the side of a Tahoe. But luckily I had just enough space to get around him. However, on this bike I noticed something really strange last night. When I jump on the rears first, there was a loud shutter similar to how ABS in a car, and a really bad vibration.. might have been wheel hop but I can't say for sure. Then after the rear brake was disengaged, it continued for about 25ft.... like something in the rear is binding up or the chain had come off. Then all at once, it stops and rides normal. Any idea on what this is?. I've never had this happen on a bike before... could there be something wrong in the rear? The chain does have a little bit of slack in it.
