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

Everyone does. It's basically the only to learn how to hop-bar. As soon as you let go of the bike and spin the bars, the frame tries to go all corkscrew on you because you're not really controlling it anymore. Pinching the seat helps the bike stay level. You don't really have to 'pinch' the seat though. Think of it as guiding it.

The actual seat being fat enough and being the right, grippy or slick material, and the height of the hop, matter a lot more than the height of the seat. Don't listen to people that say to run the seat crazy high. 6" to 8" of post is enough. At least that's what she said.
