the stem, as you probly no, is the part that holds your handebars, this comew w or w/out gyro tabs.......when you purchase i gyro, it comes w/ the tabs that go just below your stem, and SHOULD come with tabs that connect to your headtube.....youll be fine buying one w/out tabs.......

hope i helped......cav

Yes you can. Neither my frame nor my stem has tabs. I added them to the frame and to the stem.




Hope that helps!

The stems that have tabs, make for a more stiffer, tighter and dialed brake. without the tabs you may have a slight "play" (i hope you know what play means)
same thing goes for frames that have welded on tabs...
if your a die-hard gyro guy and want the best, tightest, and smoothest braking/spinning out of your gyro then the pre built tabs (on the stem and frame) are the only way to go.


ps. that is a nice example Trimix
