Hi. I have a road BMX and it's fitted with a V brake. I wanna use a gyro brake set but that will include U brakes. Can I fit my V brake bike to U brakes or do I need any adapters? Thanks!

You would need adapters and even if you can locate them it’s not ideal. You can also use vbrakes with a gyro but again isn’t ideal.

No such adapters exist. But yeah you can use a gyro with a v brake. It'll suck and takes a fair bit of fine tuning
