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

    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.

    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:
