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

Here's one for you... If you have a spin tech and you are putting it on an 86' RL20, and you want to use an epoch headset, yet the epoch upper cup that goes on top over the bearings sticks out too far... What's the fix there other than getting a different headset..? Anyone that can help would be appreciated..

You mean to use an epoch with the plastic cap or the metal one?
The metal ones are made for Spin-Techs like on my DPC.

Plastic ones I wouldn't recommend, but if you are going to do it anyhow I would say try not using the double barrel cup. Maybe use a lower gyro cup like this ...

http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/55127/download59664d6406.jpg

Also ... I have found that the Mori Epoch plastic cap is slightly smaller than the GT Epoch ... so that would be another option!

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

Well what's the problem? Looks like your missing the frame cup? Also ... is that a 1 1/8" non-threaded fork? Looks like it! Nood closer pics of the problem area!

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

They are 86' RL20 forks w/ pegs, threaded.... From what I've been told, the problem is when you put the lower gyro tab on the frame, then the bearing cup etc. once you get it all together (the headset), the top cap of the headset is too wide so that the cables hit the top cap and actually bend in order to get attached to the spin tech set up... I hope that makes sense... I've not had all this together yet but I think you see the problem...

I understand the problem in theory you are describing. But even if it sticks over the cup a little I don't see how this would be possible. Unless you have a race version or something very strange.
I'd say pull the parts out of the bag and do a dry run to see what will actually happen. smile

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

Since we are doing hybrid rear detangler setups ... I`ll play

Gyro/Spintech hybrid on my 87 decade. I didnt have the heart to cut the tabs off. So I did this ...

http://i117.photobucket.com/albums/o75/GAMERA11428/PARTS/101_4294_zps2151d831.jpg

I used a part from a Primo Pervert to do the lower cable ...

http://i1136.photobucket.com/albums/n48 … 2caa6a.jpg

and with the gyro cup you shouldn't have this problem either. Look at all that space around the non-Epock set up.

Yeah... I'll do that and then let you know what happened...  big_smile

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

I originally restored this '87 Detour with a GT Mallet, but decided to swap out for a Spin-Tech so I could use the mallet on my '86 PWT!

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

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...

It looks like there's a lot of "room" but there is very little, it may work I just have to lengthen the cables though to find out...

Looks close, but I think it will be fine, especially since you will only have cable, and not housing, go from spinner unit point to the gyro stops.

As far as how did I get the cables the right length on the lower gyro half on the hybrid set ups ...

"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 unwound 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.
