    Ok the way i do barspins is i go about walking speed then put both feet on the pegs... after i straighten out i grab the seat with my hand and pull back then spin the bar .... i land thaat 60% of the time


    Is my way a "fake barspin" and are there any videos or tips to do a barspin with my feet on the pedals???? also i get real nervous when i try the "real " barspin how do i stop that

    its not fake.....JUST ******** (no ofense to those less fortunate as to have a mental or physical disability)
    1. go to x-mart and buy a 1080 ramp or find a nice curb
    2. pedal
    3. go off either ramp or curb
    4. bunny hop at the edge.
    5. clutch seat/seatpost between legs
    6. throw bars around
    7. dont kill yourself
    8. ride away

    1. x-mart = wal-mart, k-mart, etc.
    2. go practice bunnyhoping before you think about barspins....start with the basics befe you move to the intermediate
    3.if your nervous throw on some shin gaurds shoulder pads knee pads and a helmet and if your still nervous than deal with it and do it n e wayz
    4. im younger than you

    If you can only bunnyhop 3 inches, you shouldn't be worrying about barspins. Build some dirt jumps, jump curbs, ride as much as you can and learn how to control your bike before you go throwing your bars off of a plastic kicker ramp. That'll just lead to knocking some teeth out.

    Just throw the bars. I do half and full barflips all the time with both feet on the pedals. As long as you're moving forward at even a slow speed you'll be fine.
