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

Fishbone internals were on Kong Fu and Ninja frames, btw.

You don't have any pics of Fishbone externals, so I'll add one:

These were sold in 1" and 1 1/8".  Black, Red, Purple, Blue.

and now for something NS flavor (Snafu Mobeus):

Wow... a scoot with a Spintech... Nice!!!  Those things were fun bitd... one of my friends had a GT Zoot, and we used to all practice cherry pickers on it.. Gyro set up, front & rear brakes(and pegs).


What kind of oil are you guys using for lubing the detanglers? 

I know Odyssey doesn't recommend grease because dirt needs to fall through.  BITD, I'd just hit it up with some WD-40 every so often.

Matt Wilhelm mentioned Tri-Flow in one of his vids. So I bought a bottle off eBay and it works great without the mess of oil.

i don't use any on the mobeus...there's no bearings.  in a pinch though, i might try some graphite on it.

I hate scooters. But this set up looked kinda cool! Even though I really don't get it! hmm tongue  Back breaks on a scooter. lollollol   For as fast as your going to go might as well only have front brakes and avoid the whole detangler issue all together! I mean are you really going to go over the bars when you hit the front brakes? All your weight would be on the deck keeping the back end down! roll

Looks like some good stuff!!!!
Might even lightly coat some restored nuts & bolts with that stuff (unless anyone can recommend a better rust inhibitor?).


Over the weekend I was restoring some detangler pieces, and one of them had what looked like grease (or possibly built up graphite lube?) it was caked on so bad & thick it looked like dirty wax. That's what reminded me of the original instructions I got with my Gyro bitd about not using lube.  But I could've swore there was some light yellow lube on them when they were bought new bitd.

Will definitely try that Tri-Flow, now that the pieces are well cleaned out... thanks.

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

A lot of good stuff in here. But maybe because of my time frame, I find that Gyros and Oryg's to be the most aesthetic detanglers, and possibly also that when I was a kid getting into bikes, toy store bikes like Royce Unions had ACS Rotor style detanglers, while "bike shop" bikes game with Gyro's and Orgys.

I want an 80's neon Mongoose, or Dyno, and I know I'd throw a Gyro on it.

Also, since there are no SST Oryg's, heres my last build in 2001, a 2000 Schwinn full custom, including an Oryg.

How did you make the cable long enough to fit from the frame to the spin tech without chopping everything all up...? BTW heres a pic of the RL20 and my epoch set up... I "think" it may work...

http://i748.photobucket.com/albums/xx12 … /021-3.jpg

when I put a gyro on an rl  20 III use and 1 1/8"

The bottom bracket goes around the headtube, snug but not tight. a little red black tape under to hold it up before the cable tension does the rest.  I taper the bottom of the headset top nut to wedge inside the 1 1/8 top plate (for those that use the gyro)

you can deform that 1" bracket to get alot more clearance 3/32-1/8 each side. pulls the front in tho so it dont work on 20 II


The first time I saw a gyro, I used my rotor 1 more time to ride right to the bike shop and get one.
They let me do all my work on their stand, also worked on many other kids bikes there....I think I was free labor....at least I got to pick my own hours....LOL

Shout out to oozy's hardcore street rider PC. Saw this first at the 2013 Jersey Ride. Many battle scars on this. But oozy's style is not that of a carpet queen!
Oozy is stripping this down and restoring for the 2014 Spring Dyno Build off, so we look forward to seeing the tansformation!

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

I remember Rich Upjohn still rode a Spintech on his bike well into the 90's, ten+ years after they had gone away.  I think I remember him saying the pull was better than a gyro and he liked that you could use any cable, not just gyro specific ones. 

Was the Spintech really better?  I never knew anyone who ran one, by the time I got the party (1989) Odyssey had won the war.

I think that is a matter of preference, I prefer the Spin-Tech over a Gyro for 1 gyro cables suck IMO and to me a Spin Tech looks cleaner and none of the janky noise Gyro's make.

my mobeus doesn't make any noise.  period.  and the mechanical leverage off running dual cables (not y's) is just phenomenal.  i wouldn't trade a good gyro setup for anything--and i doubt even KHE's new setup.

I run dual cables on my Spin-Tech as well, I weight 245 and it stops on a dime everytime. I wasn't talking about new gyro setups as I never ran 1 and would be lying , I hate the noise of the gyro cable (metal piece) hitting my bars lol

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

I apologize for the pics not showing the actual brand, but I used an ABUILLA rotor setup on my '88 Peregrine and its the best rotor/brake detangler I've ever used on a bike. The brakes are flawless and it's spins like butter.

It's was super cheap so I plan on picking up a few more and making some personal decals for them.
