BMX: How-to – Pickup Bars w/ Tom Villarreal

Pickup bars… Where to even start!? While some might find this laughable, I’ve met plenty of legitimate pros, barspin champs even… who still can’t quite figure out the pickup barspin. And as simple as this trick might be, that’s the beauty of it. People do ‚em to drop, Julian Arteaga did a fakie pickup bar to fakie manual, and imagine something like a pickup bar to rail 180!? We consulted with Tom Villarreal to run you through the ins and outs of the pickup barspin.
