You don't neccesairelly spin the bike...just the frame. Here is one tip I can give you...DO NOT KICK THE FRAME. Kids beileve they do it right when they kick the frame around. You use your uper strength to basicly nudge the frame and it slides around. The way I learned them was when I was doing 360s I accidenlty let the frame slide out and stade straight with the bards, wheels, forks ect.

gyration man! move your arms like your churnin butter and the frame will come around. kickings bad just give it a little nudge and churn away. This will be helpfull when you take it to the air.
