Can anybody suggest a nifty way of getting out of an arm bar after it has been 'locked on?' (other than biting/pinching).

biting and pinching will not get you out of an armbar.

Against a newb you can sometimes roll the direction they are going backwards. Anybody with a clue will just roll with you and apply it upside down.

by "locked in" i assumed the opportunity to roll had already passed

There is a reason it's called a submission.

i just remembered the ultimate armbar escape, in fact in works almost every time against any submission...
TAP OUT !!!!

Is the armbar applied standing or on the ground ?

Do you really train or just bore people on message boards and parties talking about it.

Sorry Kempocos I should have been more clear - I am assuming both parties are on the ground.... and the opponent is ignoring your tap-out!

1. channel mystical chi.
2. shoot fire out of fingertips, killing opponent.
3. meditate on the meaning of life high in the mountains of tibet.
seriously though, it depends on exactly how your opponent is applying the lock.. you might be able to reach around with your other arm and rake at the crotch, depdning on exact positions. i've never had to worry much about getting out of armbars using a technique. i just generally keep fighting... i'm double jointed, so i don't feel armbars until my elbow is nearly dislocated, so i can keep beating the hell out of my opponents legs and essentially just yanking away. that wouldn't work on the street, of course, but it's just the way i tend to respond.

Asking how to get out an arm bar after it is locked in is like asking how to block a punch after it has hit your face.
