How To Set Up A Mountain Bike For Jibbing | Barspin And Freecoaster Hacks

Published on December 8th 2018


As mountain bikers we all want to be able to do cool tricks and stunts to add some style to our riding. Jibbing, BMX tricks and street riding on MTB’s has become increasingly popular, so Doddy has some great maintenance hacks to show you how to set up your bike for barspins and fakies. Subscribe: The GMBN Shop: Doddy set up Chris Smith’s Nukeproof Mega with an extra long brake hose and a hollow star nut so that he can do a barspin with tangling his brake hose or damaging the bike. He also installed a cheap freecoaster hack using cassette spacers so that Chris can fakie without having to backpedal. Chris is a master at freeriding and performing incredible tricks on his mountain bike, and was the person who taught Doddy how to fakie.
