there are no "gyro brakes". just gyros. any brakes work for gyros. but only some work for the better gyros. but one good one is the snafu one. and look on albes or your local bike shop.

time to learn the importance of correct spelling. "breaks" is a verb, as in breaking something or broke something. "brakes" are the things on a car, bike, ect., that help you stop.

My setup is:
Brake Lever - Odyssey
Upper Cables - Snafu Astroglide Upper
Gyro plate - Shadow Strike (any plate will work)
Detangler - Snafu Mobeus
Gyro Tabs - Fit/S&M (gyro tabs are usually frame specific and you should always make sure your frame has removable tabs or welded tabs before buying a gyro.)
Lower Cables - Snafu Astroglide Lowers
Brakes - Diatech Angled 996s

and that should be everything you need to run a gyro. always talk to your LBS first though if you don't know EXACTLY what you're doing.

just the normal monolever, kinda missed that. i had to mod the upper cables and barrel adjuster to get them to work though. worth it in my opinion.
