Theres a huge trend at my local to get a full gyro set up. Im guessing its cause shredder jimmy has them and kids think that if they get them they can turndown as well as he can. Anybody else noticing this at their local?

Around here it's "brakeless with at least 2 pegs, the more the better". It's a big "street" scene around here.

I was considering getting a gyro, and i might still get one, im not sure yet though

Same here. But I go through phases, sometimes I run front and rear, sometimes just rear, sometimes gyro, sometimes straight cable and sometimes brakeless. Whatever my mood is. Right now since my nearest indoor park is all wedges and ledges, I am brakeless. For some reason if I have brakes, I do a LOT more brake related tricks, AND I prefer to jump more, and go higher etc. I get way more street techy without, and that's about all there is for that park.

When we hit spring and can get some trails going or the Plaza is cleaned off, then I will toss the gyro back on probably.

Most of the kids in these parts do either a long straight cable or brakeless. two or zero pegs.

Some people make front brakes look badass. I know a this guy he rocks a front brake and does some crazy stuff with it. Makes me wanna get a front brake but I have always been brakeless lol.

In Chicago if you dared to put on front brakes you are either brave or stupid. Or both because kids will ride on you forvere even after you take the front brakes off.

Rear brakes are kool though. People don't disupute over whether or not you should have them on.

However they do encuorage you to go brakeless but at least they do it in a nice way.

ive just set up a brake, which i bet wont go down well at all at my local. i decided to change to because this park near me that i like hay recently changed so its really tight, it literally, vert wall, 6 feet away, jump box, 3 feet from that, spine, connected at the bottom of that (so that that bottoms of the quarters are touching) is a volcano spine, then a quarter bout 8 feet away. its nice to flow but you cant jump the box then do the spines as you get too much speed. im going for an all nighter next weekend so i thought id set up a brake and see how it goes and take it off after the alnighter if i dont like it. i only know of one of my friends that rides a brake...

Here it differs, it's actually really spread.

You'll see a fair amount of gyro no pegs gyro with pegs, breakless and pegless, breakless with pegs, straight cable breakless and sometimes a straight cable with breaks.

But I don't care ride what you want.

Here the trend is no pegs no brakes, but 90% of the no pegs no brakes kids are fly-out heroes and suck shit. if you wanna spot a good rider around here look for someone with brakes cuz usually they know whats up.

i was kwbike.co
i run brakes. wanna fight about it?
shithawks are the future

almost no one ride brakes in sweden but it all depends on what you do. There are no parks around here and all i ride is street so there isnt really any need to put on brakes.

However when i ride trails with my dirt bike i always use brakes. I know this may sound stupid but it feels like i got more control riding brakeless since i wont have any fingers on the lever.

And gyro isnt really my thing and i think ill remain brakeless for as long as i ride, they just add weight and are a bitch to get dialed.

HELL YES. I hate seeing a loada thirteen year old kids turn up with the lowest frame going, gyro's and 6.0's. It's either that or scooters, i fucking hate scooters. Too many kids doing it cause everyone else does, which is silly. AAH.

You're the most ignorant person I've ever seen.

And I'm brakeless until trail season, than I run a straight cable, all odyssey brake setup. Never ran a "good" gyro, just on shitty walmart bikes when I was in grade school. And I've never run front brakes, the trend in my area is "Brakeless or go home."
