Diamondback Grind 2008

I just got this bike today and am new to bmx riding. so far i can do a 360 barspin seatgrab,
what do you know about the diamondback grind model 2008.,
http://www.diamondbackbmx.com/items.asp?deptid=2&itemid=244.
i want to get better, and have been watching how to videos online. the first trick i want to master is the fire hydrant. I can only get the first wheel turn.
Thanks

Somehow I doubt you can do a 360 barspin seatgrab the first day. I've been riding for a bit longer and I can't 360 or barspin.

I think he meant the bar doing a 360 while he grabs his seat.

ya, like spin the bar around, its kind of easy. is that a good bike.i can do it going slow. i can do that and ride a manual for like 8 inches, and get the first thing of a fire hydrant, but cant sweing the bike around, i guess that will come with practice.
oh and how many points do u have at ipodsweepstakes, ive been doing that for a while, and got 2 shuffles and a video for my mom for mothers day.
now im at 750 trying for a shuffle for a freind of the family.
i wish i could bunny hop, ive read how to do it, but i just cant get the back tire off the ground.
sorry to seem noobish, but im new to bmx riding street

I've got 950ish points. I'm too lazy to do it a lot. I just want something so I can sell it for some money for parts.

theres easyier sites to do, that pay a lot higher, like myfavefreebies or cashchute. you can get paid by check or paypal. ive done quite a few diffrent sites and have made around 1400 paypal and around 400 in giftcards. if you get a prepaid visa card for 25 you can get around 200 in gift cards.

sorry to go off topic, but me and 2 of my friends just got new bmx bikes and really dont know where to start

You should go ride your bike instead of being here.

Why are you online then? If you are going to criticize someone, then don't be doing the exact same thing that you are criticizing someone else for. Some people don't ride their bikes 24/7. Being that it's almost 8:00, it's dark out, and he's probably relaxing. He also happens to be crippled...

It has the same material that some of the Eastern bikes have, except less holes.

the easiest way to learn how to bunny hop is to ride straight at whatever you're trying to jump. you either crap yourself and make it or stack and give up trying - either way problem solved.

Or you could think of it like a skateboard ollie.

I don't even know what to say to the last two responses, other than that's just why BMX riders are known for being stupid and doing stupid things. First off, the riding right at something doesn't really work until you can actually get your bike off the ground. Then Fuzzbox, an ollie on a skateboard and a bunnyhop on a bike are worlds apart.

Well if you think about it the concept is the same if you've ever done it. You pop the front up and slide your foot up and your back comes up. On a bike you pull the front up and do some foward action thing and your back comes up.

You realize that concept works for everything, right? You are using completely different muscles and body parts. Hopping a bike is also a much more dramatic motion.
