Once you learn how to do a barspin, you’ll find yourself popping the trick all the time. It’s a cool beginner trick that can serve as the base for a bunch (think hundreds) of combos later down the line.
Put simply, a barspin is when you spin your handlebars 360 degrees while in the air. Before you get to practicing the barspin, we recommend you figure out which hand will be your “throwing” hand and which hand will catch the bars—this will eliminate some nasty mid-air mistakes. The best way to learn the barspin is either flat with a bunny hop or airing out of a quarter bowl. If you want to practice the movement before getting air, you can try it out with your front wheel over a curb—this will help you get a feel for the way you’ll transfer the bars to the other hand.
Alright, ready to give it a go?
