It's how much the ends of your bars angle up.

more upsweep = easier on the wrists when doing a big drop

No you didn't.

I seek progression, not perfection.

Wal goose, first bmx bike owned, thing was fo like a seven year old, I rode it until I was eleven, then I changed the bars out on the bike after the wal goose and used those until I got the bars I have now. Put the old bars into the back of the trailer with a bunch of other metal stuff and got 300 dollars recycling. When I got the new bars I wondered why they pointed up and I tried bending them down, didn't know what upsweep was until today.

Its when you take a broom to a dirty cieling.

Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.

Upsweep - an ascending angular projection of the grip area of a bicycle handlebar, measured in degrees of radians, typically in bmx between 0 and 4 degrees, the more common being 2 degrees: I like to run bars that have 3° of upsweep.
