A friend of mine was trying them today so I figured I'd try them too, took a while but I finally grew a nutsack & threw the bars.. but my bike keeps falling to the side. I can barspin clockwise right now and don't have that problem since the way my feet are (right foot forward) but I can't seem to keep my bike from not falling peg side down when I toss them switch, which is counterclockwise... Any tips? They look semi good at least, better than my regular haha Photo

i just learned switch bars yesterday, i was surprised that i didnt have any problems like this and it actually only took me 6 or so trys to land them, i find that my bike does go on a funny angle and i think i just counter balance myself? like, i think i lean toward the side thats opposite the way its falling. try positioning yourself differently, i definitely dont do regular bars the same way i do my switch ones, i dont know of anyone that does near me

yeah I was thinking if I just lean one way it might work out better but it feels weird. Do you think it would help if I caught the right side of my bars so it can't fall down that way? I'm still working on them obviously, I'll throw a video up in a moment but I definitely think I need to flick em faster

well your footing does depend on the way you bar. so maybe try it opposite footed?

That'd be retarded though cause then I'd never feel comfortable doing them

this isnt necessarily true, i switch feet for my whips, and i can do them everywhere, however, barspins switch footed would be very weird.

I'll try to pinch them, and maybe catch them at around the 270 mark. I feel like I have more control over these than my regular cause now I'm catching with my right hand and I'm more coordinated with that
