Kink Roc?

I am looking at a Kink Roc after hearing a lot of good things about it.

Can I put a Gyro on it?

Does anyone have any pictures of it, all I can see is the one a DansComp?

Would this be a good bike for tricks and street riding or is it just for racing?

How are the brakes?

It is a great bike for street riding. The brakes are fine. You don't need a gyro but if you really think you do then you could probably put one on. Search google images for pictures of it. Buy it and then show us pictures of yours.

lol. I have looked. Yes, not having a gyro isn't a option.

How do you know its a great street racer?

And why can't I find anything about KINK bikes?

Street riding is like grinding and stuff not racing on the street. If racing on the street is all your going to use it for it's not worth it. And Kink has a website.

the kink roc is a sweet complete. thats all you need to get into riding and even become a more advanced rider. You don't need a gyro either. A long straight cable is more then enough to spin the bars around once or twice, or tail whip. If you are just starting out there is no way you'll be doing either of those tricks though so it dosen't matter. If you really don't like the idea of unwinding the cable after then just take your breaks off.

whats so bad about having a gyro, you all make it sound like its terrible to have one and my bike will fall apart. They make the bike look good, and you can spin for how ever long you want.

Gyros make braking not as good. Plus they add weight (but not noticable weight, lol). I have one on my bike, and I think it's fine. I don't need super braking though. Just enough to keep me from hitting cars/people/trees/etc on my work commute.

If I would get the Kink Roc, I would repaint it! They should of made it to more of a darker burgundy red. But it's just in my opinion.
