when you guys barspin, do you pinch the seat with your knee's / thighs, or just send it?

Good question. Back when I rode BMX 20 some years ago I definitely pinched my Dave Mirra seat during barspins. Having gotten back into it through riding my dirt jumper I’ve been wondering, though.

Some people pinch the seat while others pinch the cranks to keep the bike up, personally I pinch the seat.

what do you think is best to learn it, seat or cranks?

and that would mean raising it up? cause right now, I have it slammed, would that apply for T bog's and what not? pinching the seat

Yup raise your set to where it’s comfortable to pinch between your knees. I like mine a little above my knees so I can really lock in. No need to move the seat for tbogs.

Ferda brother, good luck, barspins are tough to learn.

would it be best to learn on my back? thats what i've seen, but for whatever reason, I can't throw them on my back, but can flat fine(with wheels on the ground)
