    I seen a video of this kind of higher speed stop but can't find it now. On the one I saw the rider simply and gently steps off the back when the wheel stops. A brake is handy for nice controlled stops on a large uni. I do it al the time but not the extend shown in the photo above.

      Fairly upright I suppose. I suspect there might have been a headwind or perhaps I was accelerating.

        I stay in this leaning back position until I come to a stop and just put my feet down. Sorry I don't have a video of it.

          Corbin Dunn posted a little video of leaned-back brake-assisted coasting in an old thread.
