Have you tightend your crank yet?

What feels worn out?

How old are you?

and have you even tried a barspin yet?

tighten the crank. barspin, assuming you have pegs, left foot on left peg spin it jsut enough for you to catch it. watch your balls. Also try it without riding.

By worn out do you mean things got loose, or your brakes suck even worse than when you got them?
This is somewhat normal, take it to a bike shop and get a tune up, and watch and learn what they do.

Dont worry about barspins until you can bunnyhop and know some other tricks, like x-ups, so that your comfortable turning your bars. And by then you will have more bike control.
