HUGE barspin problem

So I've been trying barspins for around a month, I can do them super fast and catch every time standing up but when I hop and try to throw them, my foot always comes naturally off the pedals and this causes my front end to go down really fast. I tried them on grass too and the same thing keeps happening. I don't know how to force myself not to put down the foot.. I'm not going to try it bus driver style cuz that's how my finger got dislocated two weeks ago, I kinda kept spinning and fell on the bars :

He's right, but be prepared to eat shit. Did this when learning 180s a while back.

i dont like the duct tape idea, just personal tho, it took me a while to commit and keep my foot on when learning them too, honestly, just lean a little further forward. worked for me.

What do you guys think about trying them on an indoor bike first, like Adam LZ suggests? I was going to try it tomorrow

Hop higher and you won't be as scared to commit.

Quit being a little bitch and keep your foot on your pedal just as you would for any other trick! That's your problem! You're being a bitch simple as that.

NO If adam LZ suggests it then DON'T DO IT. HE IS THE BIGGEST CUNT EVER and needs to be shot multiple times.

he gave you advice which is actually completely correct and you responded with a particularly illogical point which i pointed out, just because you don't like the advice doesn't mean it isn't correct

There are no skateparks where I live, I'd have to get a train but would be kind of pointless as I can't even fly out properly sad went to a skatepark like twice..

Are ye really serious with Adam LZ? I actually made that indoor bike today and it made me much more confident, I can get the spin but I'm catching it like just after it lands, I need like one more day with that to get it, then after like another full day of practice I'll bring it outside tongue

Not really, It's a bit different but I can still do it no problem, I spin them like super fast tongue I've been doing them standing up barspins for like 6 months tongue and I think its cuz of that I'm having so much problems with them, I got too used to throwing them standing up ;/

the indoor bike might work, but in my opinion its not worth it. one thing that might help you with catching is putting one of your feet on the rear peg, one on a pedal, and pulling like a half assed manual, and getting your spins nice n smooth.
and almost NO ONE in bmx likes Adam LZ, he's a cunt who should be castrated with a saw. hahaha

Wheel chair ramp.

Perfect place to try them.

Or off a small step.
