when did pinching yourseat for a barspin become uncool. you look at youtube on videos labeled (my first barspin) where stupid poeple can't figure out that if you raise your seat an inch or two and pinch it, you can learn them without your bike falling out from under you it takes three times longer to learn them.just wondering.

I'm trying to learn them right now too... I stopped riding for a while and when I got back into it, I had to re-learn most of my tricks because the frames and parts evolved so much. Gotta go with the changes or get left behind right?

Guys have any advice on how to do it other than pinching the seat?

Down since 93 and will always be...

i learned how to do barspins about 12 years ago.. then didn't ride a bike for 10 years..
i recently got my bike out and started messing around with it.
i wish i would have learned how to do a barspin without putting one of my feet on the pegs and pinching my seat, because now i see people doing a 180 bunny hop while doing a bar-spin and its just crazy..

here is a video of me doing barspins.
note, that i maybe have ridden a bike 10 hours total in the last 10 years, when this video was taken..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4Gc00D9PVI

i used to be able to jump over the handlebars.. now i have a beer gut and am old..

it just looks cleaner without pinching the seat but doing it while your learning it will help.

Stewart Johnson rides with about 3" of post - I bet the "kids" don't park comp/PIG him.

Check out his setup here.



I wouldn't worry about it. The "kids" seem to try too many tricks and not really master any down my way. Best to lay down 6 tricks REALLY well and tweak them out, than to do 60-odd tricks in the sketchiest format possible.

I can only do them pitching the seat, that's how I learned them, and that's how I can do them.
I think barspins have been around for so long, since the mid 80s, but theyre still a nice trick.
Kids can do barspins out of the blue now, but I'm happy with what i can do, after all, I can still do it.
I have a good story about barspins, and once talking to The Lord Volker, asked why he wouldn't do them, and the reply was" Why should i bother to do a trick that everyfucking kid can do?"
I guess he was right...
I'd like to see a rider pull arun without barspins and tailwhips nowadays.
Is it possible??

That's exactly my point, with so many other tricks, why do people have to do so many barspins?
I would rather see big gaps and high airs, guys going big, but I see a lot of muscle spinning and landing anyway witha barspin thrown in the middle...
There're different riding styles, and I think originality is still the most important thing.
Well, just an opinion.
