The Spin-Tech, Gyro, Rotor, & Miscellaneous Detangler Thread!!!

http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/55127/spin-tech-collage-02559567a893c.jpg

Over the years I have developed a great appreciation and admiration for the Sakae Spin-Tech. It is a wonderful creation and technological pioneer in the world of BMX detangler systems. Although there are numerous “Tech & Restoration” threads with information on how it works  I feel that the Spin-Tech, along with the various other detangler systems, deserve their own “Catchall” thread. In this thread we can discuss these marvels of creation, share tips on restoration and modifications, or just post pics of how our detangler system sits on our riders and carpet queens!  I will reserve the first few posts of this thread for assembly instructions and diagrams. But after that it is up to you, the museum members, to fill its pages! So let the posting begin! Enjoy!

Admin and Mods. Please leave this thread under Catchall! Thank you!

Re: The Spin-Tech, Gyro, Rotor, & Miscellaneous Detangler Thread!!!

The most difficult part of pieceing together a working Spin-Tech system is getting the lower Spin-Tech Hardware (as pictured below). However, those coveted pieces are difficult to find and when you do there is usually a bidding war to obtain them. But like most things in life there are always alternatives. I have nearly 10  Dyno's that having working systems due to a little ingenuity and thought. In this post I will show some pictures of these modifications and explain the two options that are available by cutting out the middle man! smile

http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/55127/1989-dyno-compe-05959567c0c08.jpg

Option 1 - Running Dual Cables (Works on 990 brakes only)

The top half of the Spin-Tech set up is fairly simple. But finding the head cup with the dual cable guides is difficult. So in both of these mod instances I simply use an easier to find item, an Odyssey Lower Cable Stop (as pictured above). An advantage to this as well is additional cable adjusting.

Next, you simply run two cables from the spinning unit all the way to the 990 brakes. If you are running these cables on the bottom side of A Dyno Pro-Compe you will have two holes that you can thread that were welded on by GT in order to mount the 2 to 1 splitter (see below). Then you can use an Odyssey London Mod and attach to another welded on cable guide. This way the two cable housings can then be stopped so the cable wire can proceed to the brakes. (See below) You may need the assistance of Lucky Bolts with your 990 brakes. These usually come with the brake kits, or you can buy online at various shops. ( ex. - http://flatlandfuel.com/luckybolt.aspx)

If you are mounting your cables to a frame that does not have these welded guides simply hold in place with zip ties or electrical tape.

To finalize dial in your brakes and make any needed adjustments.



Option 2 - Running Gyro Cables (Works on side pull or 990 brakes that use a hanger)

This next option is a little more difficult, but requires less modified hardware. It is taking a gyro cable and modifying it to work with the Spin-Tech spinning unit. The reason that it is more complicated is because in order to make the cable work you will need to reduce the housing on both sides and on the top half of the cables that feed in through the gyro plate about 2". I have done this before by meticulously cutting the cable housing with a drimmel. However, that way is very time consuming and has 0 margin for error. So in this example I will use the method of snipping off the ends and repacing them with knarps. You can see how I did this on the following photo.

http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/55127/1985-dyno-compe-ii---grey-11659567ef740.jpg

http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/55127/1985-dyno-compe-ii---grey-10759567f17ee.jpg

http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/55127/bd643427-ca94-48da-880f-8c65c03f4508_1.8d88f56a0d414919dff8da71af49f17459567f8480.jpeg


When doing the gyro cable mod be sure to cut off only as needed. I would start with about 1 1/2" of the housing, and then if you do not have enough pull after mounting move up to 2". The reason is that not all lower gyro connectors are made the same. That little canister that holds the gyro 2 to 1 splitter only has about 1"-2" of play. If you mount and you have no play in your braking, then you probably need to remove more housing until you do.

Odyssey Knarps are plentiful on eBay or other bike shop sites. Also, the brand of lower gyro cable is not that important when it comes to functionality.

To finalize dial in your brakes and make any needed adjustments.



Oh yeah. I forgot option #3. Make your own 2 to 1 bracket! tongue

Nope. The only OG colors I can recall were black, white, and blue. I decided to go a little overboard and restore them like skittles! tongue

Re: The Spin-Tech, Gyro, Rotor, & Miscellaneous Detangler Thread!!!

history of the odyssey gyro form their website

Originally invented by Brian Scura and still manufactured by Odyssey, the Gyro is one of the most important innovations in BMX history. It's indifference to stems and headsets meant that it was the only detangler that made the transition to 1-1/8" threadless, and it is still a product that's in widespread use today. The current Gyro G3 has received changes to its cables and bearing unit over the years, and our top-of-the-line Gyro GTX-R may not look like the original, but the basic detangling cable function for all of our Gyros is still the same. The Gyro truly helped to set Odyssey apart, and it also established our reputation for following through with the development of original designs.

You mean the Sakae SpinTech? I have 4 of them as well. They came stock on the Mongoose Decade. But I only like to restore as Dyno Spin-Techs. They are all the same thing except for the logo and the stamp on the stem shaft. The first gens Sakae's were stamped '85. The Sakae "SpinTech" version also had the '86 and '87 stamps as well. The Dyno Spin-Techs were only stamped '86 and '87.

Here is the first Dyno Spin-Techs. They came out late '86 at the same time as the drain-pipe and pretzel bars!

Sweet! Love those grips! lol
Have never seen a Skyway one in person. Only the instructions as posted above. Saw a few NOS posted on eBay over the past year!

Here are a few original detangler ads!

Re: The Spin-Tech, Gyro, Rotor, & Miscellaneous Detangler Thread!!!

I've restored a few Gyro's over the years as well. These few turned out pretty good!

Re: The Spin-Tech, Gyro, Rotor, & Miscellaneous Detangler Thread!!!

Today's featured Spin-Tech is on my '85 D-30 Hybrid.  Pretty simple. Upper half is like the original Spin-Tech. Lower half uses lower gyro plate and cable. Personally I like to find a spinning assembly with the slits in the sides like were on the Mongoose Decade Sakae Spin-Techs. The only problem with this set up is that the gyro cables won't reach because there is too much cable housing. Using a small drimmel saw I cut about an inch and a half off each cable housing. Had to do it very delicately so as not to cut into the cable itself, just the housing. Then unwind the cut housing with a pair of plyers and removed.  Of couse, you can also use a regular spinning unit, cut the ends off the gyro cable, shorten the housing, and use Odyssey Knarps.

I'd recommend staying away from the Odyssey lower G3 cables if you attempt this mod. The way the 2 into one is set up doesn't work too well because when you snip off that 1" off excess housing on each side the connector piece in the barell is too far forward, and you have no sliding movement for the cable action. I usually get either a 1st gen Odyssey, or the Haro and GT brands that you get from the UK.


Spin-Tech Gyro Hybrid - For if you don't have all the hardware for your spin tech (like the transfer bracket, clamp washer, and nut (AKA Splitter)

Re: The Spin-Tech, Gyro, Rotor, & Miscellaneous Detangler Thread!!!

How to create a Spin-Tech Barrel Adjuster

http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.p … 0#p3771400


First off, here is the hardware and tools. You will need...

1) Tap and die
2) Wire wheel and grinder
3) Brake barrel adjuster
4) #10x5/16" x 1" Crown Bolt Aluminum Spacer (Home Depot)
5) Bench Vice
6) Small rounded file

http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/55127/spin-tech-00659569589d4.jpg


1) First thing I do is remove the spacer from it's plastic package and tighten into a vice. Be sure to use a washcloth or paper towels to avoid scratcing the finish. If you want a rough finish then no problem. You can wire wheel it later.

2) Once secure in the vice I use a tap and die to create the thread on the inside of the barrel. I don't know the technical size of the tap and die piece. But it says on it 6MM-1MM .003. You need to turn in a clockwise direction going forward about a 1/2 turn, and then back about 1/4 turn. It's kind of a back and forth motion. If not it will lock up on you. As you do this the shavings will drop to the floor or into the washcloth or towel. Continue this motion until you have scored the thread about 3/4" down into the spacer.

3) Then remove the spacer from the vice and slightly grind the edge so that it tapers.

4) Then take a small rounded file and smooth the edges. Also, use the wire wheel to smooth the end.

5) Then screw the barrel adjuster and nut into the spacer.

There you go. It's that simple!  smile

I know not everyone has the tools to do this. So if you would like one of the barrel adjusters that I've created just PM me. I can provide one at a very reasonable price.

Re: The Spin-Tech, Gyro, Rotor, & Miscellaneous Detangler Thread!!!

Spin-Tech Tip Of The Day!!!!!

Spin-Tech Cable Fixing Bolt

If you are missing the Spin-Tech cable fixing  bolt needed for the underside of the Spin-Tech, or just need to replace the current one, finding another is pretty simple.

http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff88/DiggityDocW/spintech/DSC01288.jpg


Home-Depot usually carries Crown Bolt socket cap screws. The size you will need is the #10-32 x ½”, as pictured. These usually come 2 in a pack.

http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/55127/spin-techparts-001_zpsfefe378859569488d4.jpg


Now if the current pinch bolt is broke off or stuck you may need to do a little more work. If it is broke off you will need to drill it out. Get a metal drill bit slightly smaller than the bolt you are trying to drill out. You can use a little oil to make it drill easier. Drill far enough until you can run the cable down through the stem from top to bottom. Once you have drilled this far get your pinch bolt and allen wrench and start trying to thread it. If you need to use the drill bit and wiggle it around a bit to give the bolt enough room to start.. Make sure do not force the bolt. If it starts to get too tight it may break off again and you’ll be back at square one. This bolt may get trashed as well while threading so that is good that they come in a two pack.

If the hole is larger than the #10-32 x ½”, you may need to use a larger socket cap screw. It may not look as good, but at least it’ll be functional!
