for the most part, a trail and street bike are the same thing.
the only difference is pegs.

Taking off a gyro is decently easy, but it can be a little annoying.

I know alot of people dont like gyros, what is your guys's reasoning behind it?? what are the advantages to just riding single cable? Assuming you do want at least one brake!! I dont have a gyro on my bike, but I was just wondering

Straight cables weigh less and for the most part help you to brake more efficiently and don't need as much tinkering.

I see, well whats a good amount of slack to have on the cable and still be able to barspin/ tailwhip, but not so long that it slaps you and gets caught up on your bars?

Or your ridiculously overgrown trails, if you're Prozakk. hahaha

Just set it up so you can spin the bars once and still brake, it's not going to brake as hard but if you can still stop it's good.

haha i imagine that would not be fun, when i used to bike something similar to that happened to me. I was doing a barspin with a wayyy too long leftover cable and it got hooked on a railing and needless to say it wasnt pretty!!! Im going to pick up some cable and a new brake tommorow considering my brake doesnt do much now without any pressure on it, maybe ill just take it off, im not sure! but thanks anyways for your guys's help

If I were you, I would take off the brakes and save yourself some money.
