Looking into fixed gear framesets or complete bikes that a medium size that can do barspins.
Anyone know any that come like this?

3rensho, Corima, BMC, Don Walker, Felt, Nagasawa.
Bianchi Pista Concept will do fine for you, sir.

without the brakes, it can barspin. This bike sucks, but I guess for tricking, you don't need high-end stuff.

3rensho is the trick bike of choice

if your gonna get a trick bike just buy a beater since its gonna get F*cked up anyway, and get a 650 and some risers.

i don't like tricks or anything like that but where do people get cheap 650c front wheels? I've always been curious but never found out who sells them.
I always thought that putting smaller wheels in the front for barspinz was really stupid, but a bunch of kids I used to know used narrow 26's with skinny tires instead of 650's because they were much cheaper and easier to come by than 650 wheels and tires.

Get a flatland bike.
Pick a 26" MTB front wheel of you choice and buy the narrowest slick tyre you can find and you're good to go. Or buy a rigid mtb fork. Or build something like this:

is the spacing right for a 700c fork?
^ do you mean hub width?
if so, yes. front MTB hub spacing is 100mm

there is some bike in the 2009 bikes thread that is designed for tricks i believe. It's also ugly as sin if I remember correctly.
