    Yes, you can put on a gyro, and you dont need one, just keep the straight cable.

    Also, tighten your crank.

    Not if you have a long enough straight cable, you just have to spin your bars back the other way after.

    I can do a double barspin and then it binds a little bit.

    I personally prefer a gyro, but when you have a long cable, and dont want to spin forever or back, then its fine...installing a gyro for it is a pain, so might as well stick witht the cable.
    i think there might be a way for you to just have the front brakes, but that would be dangerous

    Linear cables are the best way to go, even if you can do barspins and tailwhips, think about it, do you ever do multiple barspins or multiple tailwhips in one run? I dont think so, so your fine with a Linear cable that you can do barspins and tailwhips with, and then just spin the bars back when your done, or you can prespin the bars, and get two barspins.

    Plus for all you weight wennies, gyros are heaveir than straight cables.

    Plus you need a decent gyro to make up for the loss of braking power.

    i think my braking power is fine...i just dont like that cable tangling around (and you have to unspin them) but what ever makes you happy. IMO the gyro looks neater and technologically advanced

    Mine increased the braking power, via FULL dual cables (from lever to brake arms).
