i was just wondering who rides gyros and straight cables cuz when i switched from gyro to straight cable i felt it was much beter. the results were smoother braking,stronger beaking better lever snap back. it just makes your braking better overall. that my opinion :bmx_rulez:

well a straight cable gives a bit better braking, and i ride straight cable and i wont change now and im not going with any other cable then odyssey linear slic. man the housing on it is thick tough and cant kink and no matter how wound up it is the brakes work the same. im so glad i got this cable over odyssey slic cable

I run gyro's on both my bikes. I was talking to Paul from Paulsboutique.nl and he is riding for over 25 years and says it is bullshit that gyro's have less braking power if you set them up correctly...

yeah a gyro will almost be the same as a straight but its still not going to be as good as a straight because it has more moving parts. even if you set them up great they still dont compare to a straight cable because the power from the lever is direct straight to the brake while a gyro has to be redirected many times losing braking power through all those points

i run agyro, simply becus i am trying to learn barspins and tailwhips in the air and i find them easir:D

but now ill rebutt(argue)

WHAT DOES IT MATTER???!!!!!

dont ask, just go out, buy a straight cable or gyro, and try it out, or ride someone elses.......whatever feels good to YOU is what makes the bike unique, makes you better, and makes you happy....if we all say straight and you go straight, youll most likely be unhappy cus its not what YOU wanted........

just my opinion

Cool. Best answer yet.

Even though I still can't get my gyro adjusted right, :oops: I want to. I want to run a gyro simply because it makes more sense to have the option, if it works as well as straight. I hear all the complaining about "gyro's suck", and "people can't get them figured out"......seems like brakeless is the way to go.

However, I still see someone who is "pro" pull outragious backwheel tricks with a gyro. I KNOW people who say gyro's rule, they JUST have to be adjusted right. I tend to think more along these lines, and want to get mine adjusted correctly.

I think it is all in the spacers........ :?:

yeah i was running gyro for awihle but i could never get the gyro to get the braking power i want so i put a stright cable(leniar cable if you will) and it works just great . you can put enough slack on it for barspins and whips. but i need brakes
