so today i decided to fix up and improve my bike heres how it looks now, and i got a cult doomsday peg, and a salt rookie 20 inch wheel, also removed the brakes and the gyro just because i dont want to ruin my rims and i want to try brakeless. so any criticism is welcome :D

Let me tell you...it feels good! Really good.
Also you dont need a "Good" setup. I was using a 12.00 gyro setup with mission ubrakes. You just have to know how to adjust the cables and pads...

You can get a "good" setup with very little money. People have a really distorted view of gyro systems.

If you want I can link you to the setup I used.

A cheap gyro setup will lock up your brakes. How much more braking power can you have without also running front brakes or discs? Lol

Well if you want to get technical your actually locking up your rim, that is the braking surface your brakes interface with to create friction.

Im not arguing, the gyro isnt the problem in the equation. Its either the rim surface, cable tension, or brake pad/compound or a combination.

You can do anything you want, not saying you cant, just that it is not the gyros fault.

Glad you like your new setup!

That's questonable but I don't want to get into brake vs no brake again. Yea I think we both got in the wrong track, and thanks for the complement I appreciate it :D

Cut the brake tabs off your frame with a dremmel or something , would be clean .

Nothing like ruining a frame...
