I have been trying barspins for about a week now, and here is the video's i got today.
Also, i finally found out how to use the trim feature on Windows Live Movie Maker, so no more of that 20 second wait for the trick, lmao. But anyway do any of you have any tips, or suggestions?
And also, let me know how you think i am doing. And i don't want to do manual bars, i want to go straight to hop bars, or hop half bars, but i think i've got a pretty good start on them, but let me know Vital.
Here's the video:

Throwing them to the left feels "right" to me, like grinding on the left, so i don't see what way i throw them matters?

I can't seem to stay on the pedals, and clinching my knees, my seat is slammed and i can't really grip anything, so would that help? And when i hop higher i always seem to hit my knees or shins, i don't know why, but that's how it is.

because throwing them opposite to your forward foot will make the bike tilt in the air

This.

Or try to just spin them half way and than once you get that down, throw them all the way around.

it helps for that reason. even when you have no seat to pinch it brings your knees out of the way of the bar rotation. that should answer both questions. the reason you slip off is because you are leaning to far back trying to stay out of the way, or because you are being a pussy

Would you hit yourself in the knees with your bars on purpose? I didn't think so, so i am not being a pussy. But i will try to pinch thing and see if that helps.

-Thanks

Why though? That's like learning a 360 tire tap instead of a regular 360.

I know the feel of them, i'd just rather skip manny bars, and i can get them all the way around like 4 out of 5 times.

so you learn how to throw and catch them with manual bars and then when your ready for hops its easier. also for me it was easier to start out with what we call "deer hops" when you hop both wheels at the same time and do a barspin then move onto a normal bunny bar

flowin' like a period.

you gotta make sure you are fully committed you cant hop off the bike even if your gonna hit yourself you'll learn where your messing up. if you need to move your seat up then move it, it doesn't matter if it looks cool slammed what matters is that you need to pinch it. after you get the feeling of pinching try to make sure your bike is under you, also make sure your legs are straight or at least out of the way. you gotta try to get this figure and go from there
