A device that allows the handle bars to spin 360 degrees. You wont need one if you ride brake less.

adding a gyro to a bike can be difficult or even more difficult depending on the frame you have.

if you have a frame with a traditional headtube with press-in headset cups, you have to take the fork and headset out, take the top headset cup off and put the gyro plate on, then press the cup back in.

if you have a intergrated headset, the only way to put a gyro on is to drill holes and tap threads into your headtube.

cheers, ill probably see ive the bike shop has one in stock and then ask em to fit it, sounds like the easiest thing to do.

Thats if i finally get a bike!

that sounds like your best bet.

thank you for thinking for yourself. dozens of people get on bmx-f and expect the other members to psychicly know what parts they have and what sized and weight everything is. for a lot of these kinds of questions, the only way to know is to ask someone who can actually SEE your bike in person. you have figured that out. congrats.
