This trick gets the win for the EASIEST flatland trick possible...  Except when you start combining barspins with other tricks where it suddenly becomes one of the most difficult tricks possible.  You will be learning how to do a couple versions of the BASIC barspins and will be left to decide how you want to combine it with other tricks in the future.

Basically all you need to know how to do to do a barspin is ride your bike...

EASIEST

EASIEST PLUS ONE

MORE DIFFICULT

MOST DIFFICULT (without combining it)

BARSPINS TIMES TEN....

There are a hundred different 'versions' of barspins.  They have been named things besides the barspin to just confuse people even more.  For example- if you are in the middle of a trick and you jump up in the air- spin the bars 180 or more degrees and land back on the bike doing a trick- while ONLY on the front wheel- this is called a BARFLIP.  If you are rolling on the front wheel and are not touching the bars with your hands at all and spin the bars 180 or more degrees by pushing them around with your feet-  this is called a KICKFLIP.

Sound crazy?  Well some riders have REALLY pushed the limits-  Kickflip hang-nothings (no-handed hang-5's), 360 barflips to halfpackers....  540 degree barflip funky chickens...  It is just crazy.  For beginners it is better to try to learn to throw barspins on the ground as quickly as possible in any situation.  Riding off a curb and doing a barspin...  Doing a barspin to a dork wheelie...  It is up to you how to combine them with easier tricks and work your way up to what only sounds impossible....  GOOD LUCK!
