Tech 77 brake lever probably one of the most preffered brake levers in bmx fo sho. I been rockin the tech 77 since I started riding. Its a lever that has never let me down. Tech 77 responsive action and good looks makes it my favorite choice.
I love the weight of these things and the magnesium body is stronger than a lot of other ones and I'm ok (not overwhelmed) with the traction and feel but the bearing/bushing systems sucks. Mine developed side to side play after a few sessions. I also couldn't easily get replacement pins when I went looking.
These are just too $$$ for what you get.
I have used all the Gyro's available and this is definatly my favorite. It rotates smooth and if it ever gets rough a few drops of silicone lube take care of it (I've only had to do this once in two years.) I love the little intentations for the cable ends. I like the looks of it and the value can't be beat. Before buying the Snafu I exploaded two expensive Odyssey GTX-Rs. The only thing missing is built in knarps which allow you to easily modify cable lenghts for the best routing.
There not the best cranks on the marhek but i love the warranty. I have to replace my arms cause they are bent but they arnt that bad compared to what i had before. But for the same amount of money , or cheaper, you could get much better cranks.
Problems ive had:
-Bent arms (im a rough rider)
-Bolts coming loose (super glue/locktight will fix that)
-Spindle bending (not covered by the warranty)
-Splines on spinle/inside of arm stripping(i have to superglue that to keep it from moving)
These are my only problems after a couple years on them
Hope this review helps!
