it was raining today, so i opted to try them. first time ever going for one, and i got them in 20 minutes. i did 3 in a row, and a total of about 15. super stoked, their definately not clean yet, because i hit my head if i bunny hop to high in my garage, and i cant go to fast or else if i bail then my bike will go straight into a wall. (video in comments so this doesnt get moved)

can you do them flyout?

|

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
Bike check?

good but if u continue throwin ur bars with both hands you'll never be able to throw em the right way.

watch your rear foot to make sure it stays level, dropping the foot is a bad habit.

yeah, im gonna work on the one handed throw/catch. using both hands is definately easier for hop bars, but looks ugly as fuck

judging by the height of your head when you hop, an the height of your garage door roller track, which is about a foot below the roof, you have a fuckin long way to go before you hit your head, just coz your 6 foot doesn't mean your 6 foot above your bike, hop more, it'll make it easier

Yes, go and check the height of your doorways and ceilings, that will most certainly help your barspins smile

3/9/2011 2:25 PM

At least he's putting in some effort to learn and that gets you a hearty handshake my good friend! Hahaha! It looks good man, keep up the good work!

here we go....

rideallday: i always do that for some reason. cant help it.

careyn: i actually tried a halfbar and it accidentally went all the way around, and then i got my camera out and filmed this

bermybmxer: yep that was me, but it was a busdriver barspin. so it doesnt count

swallowmycock:thanks bro

cody: they are 28.5

shakesman: yeah ive always thought bars where scary but they are actually super fun when you land them

cleanbmx: thank you sirsmile and trust me, i will get them dialed as soon as i get out of the hospital, and can do them outside

nice job learning them, but relearn them quick!
youre x-uping a lot, and that makes them really inconsistent, especially if youre going them down stairsets or ledges. and you have to learn to jet hop, pinch your knees, drop your catching hand by the toptube, and throw with the other hand. makes them 100x more consistent, and youll be able to get them dialed down anything and anywhere once you get the technique down. trust me, I learned them x up'd and thought barspins were always gonna be impossible to land consistently. and then i started trying them flyout, relearned the technique from my friend who throws them the right way, and now i do them anywhere haha
