Wheel flex?

nearly got caught out by some stationary traffic today and had to slam the anchors on.

I'm fairly certain I could feel the wheels twist under me, as if the rim was stopping but the hub was still moving, then it sort of sprang back.

I've never had this feeling whilst on my MTB. Is this common on road bikes or is the Khamsin a flexy wheel?
