Push the front end forward, pinch the seat with your knees and throw them round. If that still don`t work, cut some width off your bars. If all else fails, cut some off your knees too ;)

yea dude you should have no problem barspinning if you just get your legs back out of the way of the bars...unless your bars are monsterous.

your seat might be adjusted too high as well, but if all else fails... break out the hacksaw!

no leave the hacksaw and use a 22mm pipecutter this will snip the bars easy, and you will be left with straight cutting lines and small bars for easy barspins. dont use a hacksaw, if you can help it.

for the people that are cutting their bars down i strongly suggest NOT to cut them into some mini pipes.

Yea, try cutting them down to where you hands are about 10" apart, and get ready for a wild ride! For me, the more narrow the bars the squiirrelier (if that's even a word)

if your bars are narrow as hell you will have zero front end control.

I saw on the other thread, evanc said something about 23 - 23.5 being optimal. I went and measured my current bar width....had no idea really....they're 23.5" from bar end to bar end. How lucky is that?

my bars are 22 inches wide, and my hands are 12 inches apart :p and barspins are easy, just pinch the seat, pull a bit, just a bit, and flip those bars, and whoala! (is that how u spell it?) barspin :)

PS, just make usre that u pinch the seat with your knees, not shins or abouve the knees, then ull be able to do them
