    I've heard that you can do barspins with BMX bikes. You might want to look into that.

    get a 650c front wheel, make sure your stem wont hit the tt, and well...don't use drops.

    may the force be with you.

    My 61cm Windsor The Hour had enough DT clearance for barspins but I don't know about smaller sizes. Bar spins get old. I wouldn't advise spending too much time or money on it.

    I know that the larger IRO Angus can be bar-spun... so can the Pista Concepts.

    That's it, off the top of my head.

    I try to stay as far away from barspins as i can. It sounds like a recipe for getting ****ed up.

    why do you guys post the same **** over and over again? just read the ****ing site, you'll get all the info you need. it's like you want to be crucified just so you can claim ownership of something. you want to barspin, then ****ing barspin. it's obvious what you need to do it, so just go get it and go do it. stop asking stupid questions. posting on a website about barspins doesn't = barspins

    The IRO's need pretty small tires (like, maybe smaller than 23's) to Bar-spin, the Concept's need 650 fronts.
