Just put on a gyro after 15 years of running a straight cable. I bought a Snafu rotor seeing as Odsy stopped making the GTX with the knarps built in. Just wanted to see what everyone was running and what mods you have made.

Currently rocking this left foot. Its like 26 years old, but it still works great! Using Van’s Waffle Sole as pads. Sockless.

I just tried installing a GTX and had too much trouble with it. Said fuck it and got a long straight cable.

Not running brakes at the moment, but when I run a gyro I got the Stolen Satellite gyro with SST cables and an Odyssey EVO II brake.

Odyssey M2 trigger, snafu gyro, custom barrel adjusters for easy bends, slics for bottoms routed through seat tube, suelo front brakes as rears with ghost pads.

When I run it, M2 lever, M2 upper cable, Odyssey GTX R gyro, dual lower cables (I use derailleur inner wires and 4mm housing cause it is cheap) and I use Bike Aid dry Moly lube in all housing and put a thin layer of grease on the wires themselves, Odyssey London Mod, then I run more housing and some zip ties to make a cross/"X" BEHIND the seat tube so the cables pull along pivot of the brake arms. Seems to help the braking be more consistent than just a straight pull dual cable setup. And a Diatech Fiesta brake from like 2004 or so that came with a fork from Dans.

(this is on an old frame I no longer have, but I still use the same setup.)



But right now I am rocking a straight cable setup.

Interesting. A hanger in a straight cable setup could be run that way too, I might try it.

I have not tried that, but when I replace cables next, I may set up the hanger that way and see if it works well or just adds friction and stiffens up the brake pull.

The new credence frames have a hole through the seat tube so that you can run the straight cable right through it to achieve something like that without the extra friction of making a full x.

Unless you have seatstay brakes, you would need a crazy short seat post.

I have seen a guy use a Primo Pervert as a cable hanger. Said it took a ton of stretch out of the line.
