i can do flatland barspins fairly good. i just ride fairly slow, stand on my pedals, grip the seat with my knees and do a 180 degree barspin. when i get that dialed i will try a full barspin

is it easier to barspin when your going fast, medium, or slow speed

i would try but its dark out and the windchill is like 5 below zero

It is alot easier to barspin while going slower. You would have to catch the bars perfect to ride away smoothly while your going fast. I have my barspins dialed I could do them slow all day and never even take my foot off but thats going slow. As I speed up the error level increases. However alot of it is confidence and what you feel comfortable doing.

is it considered "cool" to do barspins at a very slow speed
