These are fun! They are not one of the easier tricks to learn but you can build up to doing them very well. Once this trick is learned you can throw in tricks like decades, and time machines out of (or into) them. This trick gets easier and easier to do as long as you keep riding and practicing it. As with time machines you want to have a fair amount of air pressure in your tire or it will make the trick nearly impossible!

This is another one of those tricks that is a little more advanced and needs to be built up to. Don't expect to do ten spins the first day that you are trying the trick. What you should shoot for is getting the feel of throwing your right foot in a circle and having the front end come up. Then work on grabbing the brakes and having the frame spin around. Finally work on pulling down on the tire so that the frame keeps its momentum.

You will quickly learn what it means to pivot on the back tire. It is the point at which the bike stops leaning to the right and traveling forward and starts leaning to the left and traveling backward. Understanding how and when your bike will and wants to pivot is key to mastering the mega spin.
