Looks good!

The m2 lever comes with the cable.

9/5/2013 2:15 PM

What you guys think about the lower cable? Not heard much about it really?

|

9/5/2013 3:07 PM

That looks good but I would get 2 odyssey cables for the lower. Cant forget the small things: plate tabs

Ohh yer thanks man haha forgot the tabs!! Ready for the noob question of the day

Cause I want to run a duel system for the lower cable can I just buy 2 single cables and attach to the gyro plate at the top and then London mod at the bottom and a link to the cables that you would suggest if possible?

|

You would run the cables through the bottom tabs and into the gyro. The top plate is for the top cable. The london mod goes on your cable stop at the back and lets you adjust each side of the brakes via barrel adjusters. And you would also need some barrel adjusters for the bottom cables since a regular cable doesn't come with one.

-Odyssey m2 lever (comes with cables)
-Any detangler plate will do (flip it upside down if it doesn't)
-Odyssey GTX detangler, which I prefer because its sealed bearing instead of that retarded Snafu teflon bearing.
-Tree SB cables x2
-Any london mod.. Odyssey, Snafu, and Stolen make them.. probably more companies too
-Any high quality U-Brake should do. Everyone says "Odyssey, Odyssey, Odyssey!!" But they're pretty much all the same. Just pick one you like lol.
-Odyssey or Koolstop pads if you want clear, Fly if you don't (purple fly pads + chrome rims is the best set up I've ever had)

They have to have a little ball on the end of the cable that sits flush in the detangler. I know Odyssey Slics have them, Tree SBs have them, and Kink has em too. I'm sure there's other companies that do but I couldn't name them lol. But if you're on budget, get Snafu Lower dual cables. It comes with both dual cables and a london mod

looking at this cable
http://www.sourcebmx.com/product/components/bmx-brake-cables-amp-gyros/odyssey-linear-sls-cable/11813.shtml
am right in saying that the little ball bit at one end of the cable will go on the detangler and then what i could do is clip the other end off the cable to thread a london mod through and then attach a cable karp i think its called? onto the end of the cable when cut to my desired length and then attach that to the arm of the caliper?

That might work however it's not what it's designed for. It's much cheaper to just buy normal Dual Cables.

in the uk mate the only dual cables i can find for gyro system are the vocals link quoted in first post as its for the bike in my avatar pic and am wanting a full black brake set up

|

ive always run snafu upper and dual lowers with the astroglide detangler. all works perfect and is smooth as can be. but i do definitely recommend the dual lower cables. it will give you a better feel to brakes and be able to adjust each arm more.

The odyssey cables will work you just need to make sure you buy barrel adjusters and the london mod separately.

What brakes are you running you might need a knarp on the end of the cable if you run open ended brake arms (ex: odyssey)

Ok so I found everything you need at alans bmx
gyro
Lower cables with lonond mod
M2 lever with cable
Top plate
Bottom tabs
these might come in handy too

Is your frame drilled for the gyro tabs on the head tube? What size bars do you have?

Damn dude that sucks well if you have those knarps that go in the brake arms you can just take them off and buy 2 regular cable to use with your london mod.

A am right in saying they will be long enough to cut and put a Karl on and they will be ok cutting the end? Just worried about length now haha

|

9/7/2013 12:48 PM

They might work because I know with my bike the cable housing was like perfect but I cut the cable and put knarps on it so Idk it might work. Don't forget the top and bottom tabs

Yer no worries man they should be long enough it will just have to be a case of measure twice cut once just gotta add the gyro tabs that go onto the head tube and barrel adjusters for the cable dam am gonna have a field day setting this up.....

9/7/2013 1:00 PM

Lol it should take like half an hour but its satisfying when you dial it in and its smooth as shit. Hey let me know or post somthing when you get the stuff I wanna know if the m2 works because I would use it but I want to get 9 inch bars.
