Will this work with dual crowns?
(May 4, 2014 at 20:27)
No you need the special stanchion saw, make a small modification to your fork and then you can barspin a DH bike!
(May 4, 2014 at 20:44)
I heard rumor that Cannondale is currently plugging away at a concept for a DH bike that has a floating head tube, totally disconnected from the bike, so that any DH rider with a dual crown can spin his/her bars without hitting any frame. Still just a concept tho....
(May 5, 2014 at 0:15)
You're not wrong
I even got wind of a unique bike design they are using to prototype it, the bike even has a floating front chainring and what looks to be a carbon, double down crank set.
(May 5, 2014 at 3:56)
Wahou, impressive. What a leak! You must be a guy from Cannondale to have so detailled pics...
(May 5, 2014 at 9:24)
yeah, it would definitely be cannondale. because they're like the most freeride oriented company in the game right now.
(May 5, 2014 at 10:27)
Must be april fools round 2
(May 5, 2014 at 12:03)
On the realio gerhards, seein' how C-dale like "owns" the word "freeride". :s Shit I hope they don't sue me over my screen name like Specialized no doubt would. :o
(May 5, 2014 at 12:38)
this is why i love this forum..
(May 4, 2014 at 20:15)
Is there an enduro specific version?
(May 6, 2014 at 16:34)

Spider on the brake lever crawled down the hose and get flung off at 1:43
(May 4, 2014 at 21:28)
more like 2 minutes.
(May 7, 2014 at 7:33)
i think the spider got squish with his hand. Oh poor spider soon it will be dark and they will be so cold.
(May 4, 2014 at 20:21)
lol that was a busdriver not a barspin, with an actual bus steering wheel knob
(May 3, 2014 at 21:43)
that was awesome jack, too funny haha
(May 4, 2014 at 7:57)
So now i only need to know where to buy this thing, so i can ride RedBull Joyride!
(May 4, 2014 at 22:22)
i wounder how many kids i will see this year at crankwork with this on their f#%kin bars
(May 4, 2014 at 20:02)
Can you use a bell?
(May 4, 2014 at 22:03)
Or how about an old crankarm with a crank bros. eggbeater mounted to the top of the steerer tube so you really crank out some barspins.
(May 5, 2014 at 6:27)
Nope, the eggbeater would fall apart mid barspin
(May 5, 2014 at 5:45)
You can hook up a power generator to that knob so that when you bar-spin you light some LEDs all over your bike and then look like a boss.
(May 5, 2014 at 12:16)
Yes, no wonder they gave me so much trouble, not having the b-spin knob!!!! Here I thought it was just me. :s Thanks for the lesson Jack, but bars have become far too ubiquitous. How about a lesson on some textbook Lacondeguy/M&M/Goldman super seaters or something that oozes steez like that? We need more of those & less b-spins in this Freeride Mountain Bike Association's Freeride Mountain Bike World Tour.
(May 5, 2014 at 9:04)
I'm going to buy two so I can do double bars
(May 6, 2014 at 6:18)
Me too that'll help with X ups too I reckon
(May 5, 2014 at 15:55)
Interesting was that where he putted his leg whilen spining it in air !
(May 5, 2014 at 9:59)
'Spinning on the bus driver's knob', oh yea!
(May 5, 2014 at 1:54)
can you buy these in pro models? i want to look just like the pros so im willing to spend 100 dollars more than its actually worth and be like them !
(May 5, 2014 at 4:00)
pro model is 10% larger, 20% lighter and your wallet will have it's unique concave feel...
(May 5, 2014 at 20:04)
can't wait til next week. Dying to learn the Cali-style shoulder buzzer invert table!
(May 6, 2014 at 13:52)
nice joke...though getting your catching hand away from the bars is really important,i think.
(May 5, 2014 at 1:18)
Thinking of getting a tail lift fitted to the back of my dirt jumper to make back flips easier B-)
(May 5, 2014 at 0:04)
Does this work clipped in?
(May 4, 2014 at 20:09)
(May 5, 2014 at 11:53)
Way funny. I hope to see more of these.
(May 4, 2014 at 21:17)
Where do you get this?
(May 5, 2014 at 8:39)
So that's why the pros are better than me...
(May 5, 2014 at 3:05)
name of the song D ?
(May 5, 2014 at 10:57)
song at the end is "Two of Hearts" by Stacy Q.
(May 5, 2014 at 10:13)
Could someone post a link to where I could get one of these?
(May 5, 2014 at 18:04)
Is this compatiable with yardstick bars?
