Once at the peak of your hop you must spin your handlebars a proper 360 degrees. Make sure when you spin them you flail your arms around over them and hit your chest a few times to look like a ******. Once they are coming back around you want to grab them.

I guess that's true.

I tried some at Woodward into the foam. Got one or two. Then just threw one right to my gut and gave up. I don't know how people do barspins without hitting their knees or stomachs. And don't say they cut their bars because plenty of people do barspins and stuff with Slams...

I don't know too many people that throw barspins with slams, it probably isn't the smartest thing to do. I never attempted a barspin, too scared.

Learn how to do them in manuals, and especially how to catch them and continue the manual, and then you'll be able to do them, and it's not as dangerous as just trying hop barspins out of nowhere.

(I can't do that yet)

I did the whole parking lot at my high school.
I'll get a vid clip if you don't believe me. I believe it's around 50 spaces.
