Hi guys,
Wasent sure where to post this but here goes. I have a problem with my barspins, my foot hits the wheel as it comes around. I've tried tilting my heel back but I have to tilt it quite alot, and its tricky when you need to be sorta leaning forwards. Ive also tried putting my foot further back on the pedal but I have to put it right on the edge and almost slip off.u I have 175mm cranks, 20.5 TT and im pretty sure its a 74.5 degree HA. I know il probably need to buy some new parts to get more clearance, but I dont want to waste time buying parts that arent going to make much difference.
Any suggestions?
Thanks

Your fuck-footed. You either need to put your other foot forward, or throw the bars the other way. Or just learn how you are I've seen it done but it's sketchy and really hard to do spin trick bars( 180 bars trucks)

One thing that can help with that and four peg clearance is shorter cranks, or tilting your feet back a bit

I'm goofy footed too. Just lean back and your feet will follow.

barspins for me are shitty too, i ride right foot forward and throw with my left hand. theyre hard as hell hahah cause my bike always falls off axis. ive landed a few but bars just dont feel comfortable to me. just keep working at it and youll get it. also a higher seat helps a great deal too

Im ambidextrous with everything except maybe wallrides! haha i can oppo 180 almost oppo 360, and i already got em normal. i do my barspins actually oppo always haha. i havent had any problem that i wouldnt have had with a normal one. It doesnt really have anything to do with your foot hitting. idk what that could even be. weird.

Same, but I don't find it a problem. The tire did originally hit my foot when I was trying manny bars, but now I can do hop half bars and I don't have a problem anymore. Just try to keep your heel back and you should be fine. Aslong as your feet aren't massive you should be ok. You will learn to keep your foot out of the way overtime, and you don't need to resort to doing oppo bars.

Do you do regular 180s or Oppo when you 180 bar?

Don't throw with the hand you find more comfortable, use the hand on the same side of your front foot (ex. left foot forward, use left hand). You will want to learn throwing oppo and regular anyways, so its better to learn throwing regular first so you can do 180 bars, and truckdrivers.

Learn them both ways. They are a little bit of a personal trick as in everyone does them differently. Look at hoang Tran and Ryan Nyquist, totally different from each other.

ive got half bars up a quarter and on flat pretty good now. but when i go for the full ones the bike just goes out of control and i end up hurting something

Does it flip side ways? You might be kicking you feet I have this issue and when I focus on keeping my legs still it goes around much better, I'm terrible at catching tho

I would if my right arm wasn't retarded, if I'm in the air it's like I'm literally not aloud to throw the bars with that hand

Fuck that, just keep committing and you'll get them eventually.
