Those who can do both (360 the proper way no pivots), what took you longer?

It's pretty clear from the majority replies that you're right

I am trying to learn hop bars... I feel like it is going to take longer... maybe I should just start learning hop whips while I am at it.

In my head bunny hopping and throwing little easy peasy bars around can't be that hard. Like you bunny hop then do a barspin. Easy right? Absolutely not how it is at all! I feel you.

Hop 360 took longer for me. It took me like a month to learn and the bar spin took about a week of practicing the motion and overcoming the mental block.

I can do those little scooter hop half bars pretty consistently, but I put way more effort in the learning process for 360s than bars, so I guess barspins since I haven’t actually landed any yet.

Barspins. I might have landed like 1 or 2 really sketchy ones going slower than a snail before learning flat 360s, but I 100% learned & dialed in 360s before barspins… they were ugly as shit but no pivot/tire tap. I didn’t really start to land barspins until maybe 2ish years after learning 3s

I learned flat 3's around 2004, learned hop bars around 2019. Had a huge mental block about taking both hands off unless I was flying out of a quarter or dirt. Jammed fingers hurt

So do broken hands.

Don’t put 25.4 bars in a 22.2 stem.

Hard to answer, because hop 360 is one of the first tricks I learned (and it took me a while), and I learned hop barspins after flyout barspins and chicken barspins (so I had the motion down, and I was quite a bit better).

I would say hop 360 are easier, but to be honest the hard part about hop barspins (and barspins in general) is the mental block. Once you go past it you can learn them in a few hours/days.

I can hop 360 I cannot hop bar.

Hop Bars.

The trick with Hop 3's is when you at about 180 you have to pull the back tire up towards your butt. It feels goofy at first but once you do you can start clicking 3's real steezy

Mental block for sure. Threw a bar end into my knee about 4 weeks ago and havent thrown another since. haha

Whoa old thread. Learned hop 3’s in 2009. Learned hop bars in 2015 and like mid 2016 I stopped doing them. Never did like that trick much not my style and I plateaued with them after a few months

I’ve never done a barspin, and I haven’t done a hop 360 since I was 80kg

Feel like flat 360s (no pivot) are harder in theory but barspins get those anxiety levels flowing WAY higher unfortunately lol

Learnt hop 360s first but the learning process for bars was way quicker landed a hop bar in like 4 tries where as 360s took at least a month

I struggle with both these days because I don't ride as much, but back in the day I would say from attempting to learn them to actually having them, Bars took me longer. I didn't spend a ton of time on them, but hop 3's came faster cause I already had 3s dialed on stuff.

Bars I had dialed on flyouts etc, but I struggled hopping them for a long time, then did em for a bit, then stopped doing them.

Once in a while I fire out a few, but they are not at all what they used to be.
