How did you learn them and how long did it take?

Fuck they are hard. I could do little mannybars on my DJ but a tried doing flyout bars on my bmx and your bike just floats away from you. So hard.

You just throw it. We can't tell you because it's not something that I is done in step by step directions. Just grow a pair and throw em. You have to be willing to fall first.

I'm looking for more how it went for you, I mean I started learning them for a bit by basically hopping and chucking, but didn't stick with them, and I'm interested to see how people went about doing it

it's a hard trick to learn but easy to do just scary. you really gotta just find a decent flyout and do the exact barspin motion like you would when youre standing still don't throw the bars and back away stay with the bike. think in your head throw and catch

I had resi but it took me a good day or so, but I was riding for like 3 years at the time I learned them

I tried the just front end pulling up ones and I can't even land those, my bike literally just flies out and slips from my feet. I can also throw switch bars but they'd be the gay x-up ones.

I started learning hop bars on grass, but its hard to get a good hop, so I took them to concrete leading up to a patch of grass.

Bashed myself up so much trying them, they tire you out really quick too, I was just starting to get the hang of them but I sprained my wrist in a bowl and never got round to trying them again. There on my to do list for next year tho.

I learnt them by trying them over and over again.
Took me 20 minutes to figure out hop bars but for some strange fucking reason i can't do them anymore.
For normal fly out bars no idea.
All I can give you is small tricks and adjustments you can do but for the rest it's up to you.
Was landing truck drivers the other day in the foam pit, need to grow some balls now and do them normal.

BTW I started "throwing bars" when doing little manual bars, this helps for muscle memory.

I maual bar'd everything ever, then one day went really fast, hit a flyout in manny bar position, did one in the air, and went from there. Then I learned flyout style more smoothly, and then to hop em.

For a short time flyout style I had double bars (no bar catch bar crap either).

I would LOVE to knock that one out again. Need a solid flyout though.

I learned x-ups clicked pretty well first, which helped a bit with timing, moving my legs, and the starting motion.

hard enough trick I learned hop bars first and the proper bunny hop method not the double tyre method prepare to fall a lot get knee pads it will help and just have a go at em and as it goes for high and fat seats don't be spending $40 on a new seat thinking it will make a massive improvement you still have to get passed the initial fear of letting go and throwing just send it and wishful thinking and you'll land it no doubt after a few bails

This, BUT a higher seat is MUCH easier to pinch and sturider in the sense that you get a more solid grip with your knees if it is higher. Slammed seat = ankle pinch.

11/20/2013 1:39 PM

I didn't

when I think about it, I'm always scared that I'm gonna land with my chest on the bars and I just don't try

I can tailwhip but I can't fucking barspin

I used a house bike. I though adam lz was dumb for saying that the first time, then i just went and did it for fun to mess around with. I ended up trying them and getting them. I learned hop barspins in a day or 2. I started on grass and learned the pick up the front end bars the first day, then i got them hop on grass, did a few on concrete and have been ever since. I love em. Now i can 180 bar, 270 bar, sometimes truck depending on the amount of energy i have that day haha My tip is use that house bike if you wanna get em fast.

I used my front yard. Haha, we have hard wood floors. I used a few different balls and TAPE. Get 2 bigger sized kickballs (like the ones they use in gym, with the little lines all over) As long as you have a nice carpet floor, not a carpet on a hardwood floor, youll be good. The trick is to deflate the balls, stick them in, pump them up a bit and tape them in place.

Wish I had some. I'm a pussy and I'd totally be confident with them. Though without them, I feel like I could still learn some basics on flat.

My friends did this

sometime almost 2 years ago, was pretty neat. I think I tried a barspin but looped out, it was weird. Neat but weird

Trampoline bikes!

But yea, shin guards are worth every penny. Same with knee pads.
