Linear Bike Cable

Im going to my local NationBmx tomorrow to get some parts for my backtrail. I cant stand the Gyro anymore and im going to get it taken off tomorrow due to me always having to adjust it. If i put a Linear Cable on the bike will it bing up when i do barspins and such tricks? Help is urgent!

Not quite sure what bing up means but If your cable is long enough and you land them clean you should be fine. But there is a chance of it ripping out of your lever if you spin the bars toooo much or if you grab your cable instead of your bars like my friend did.

Nope, all it is, is adding a new cable. A linear one.
