just finished, have a look.... time for some bar spins
but what about the back brake cable.. won't it get in the way too?
oh, I see what happens... when you turn the bars around, the bar ends up actually looping under the brake cable somehow? I'm not up on the whole urban/DJ scene as you can tell.
No...his rear brake cable is so friggin' long it just wraps around
heh, neat way of routing the cable. Ive never seen in person cable routed through the steerer tube
Grab a gyro off the '05 P1's.
I'd worry about it getting caught on the tire as the fork compresses, will it?
Ah, it will go up with the fork. I figgered it out
as a side note, that's gotta be about the shortest stem I've ever seen.

There is a stem there.... I missed it upon 1st glance.
What year is that bike. Looks kinda worn to me.
I thought I was Hell on wheels....
nothing wrong with that.
Is it an actual gyro kit or is it some clever way of rigging it through the steerer? I haven't seen much for gyro's on mtb's yet.

Looks like it's just rigged through the steerer to me.
Gyro's on mtb's are relatively new, won't be running one, the line through the steerer works much better in my opinion, all you have to spend on that is $1-$2 at a hardware store.Originally Posted by seely
My only comment is that your levers seem to be almost straight down.
I like to keep mine in line with my arms so my wrists don't bend when I'm riding.
I know it's all preference, but heck, you've really got to rotate your wrists to stop.
