Hey everyone. I'm new here and i have a question. I hope i make enough sense to get help from this. But i just got a Dave Mirraco BMX bike its black and white. New version i am guessing and it has a brake system set up that i havnt ever seen before. It has a gyro system (no front brakes) just rear but there is two cables that come off the bottom gyro and go straight to the back and connect to each side of the u-brake its a Tektro system. Single cable to the brake lever....my question is can i get gyro cables that long as singles??? Because i was out riding and ended up fraying one of the cable ends....any help would be greatly appreciated thank you.

Yes. You can use Odyssey non-linear slick cables. They come with both a regular brake cable end and a ball end that can be used in the gyro.

I didn't think so. Just (sorta) finished up my setup last night & I can lock up the rear without much effort!

I never had issues, but I like to have my bike dialed and will nitpick until it is how I want it.

Yeah, gyro cables go waaaaaay far out, honestly it goes too far out to fit any size frame with nothing to spare

I'm still on the fence with this style brake set up. But yeah im sure it would be tough to dial in. One thing for sure tho...the brakes squeek loud. Not good
