FINALLY found a Cali Freespin!!!

Nice,  is it like mine or the smaller version? smile

Mine is a smidge shorter than an inch top to bottom, 2 inches left/right.  Looks exactly the same as yours except white, the one listed in post#8 on here has a bolt for the bottom cable.

Trying to remove the cable head from the bottom half and it's being stubborn, just hit it a couple nights in a row with WD40.  Any suggestions?

I would drill it out.. wink

Growing up in NJ, lots of us rode Generals. We also liked to tinker, so when we saw RL running this mod at a General show in 87, we decided we needed to do the same.

I have a 1996 Torker TFX, 1"

Has the bottom plate only for a SST Oryg. 

I know the Gyro has a couple of different models, but is that true of the Oryg?

Only thing I know about the SST Oryg plate is that sometimes the thread size was different. Anytime I used one I had to determine if I needed the big or small thread cables. hmm

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

I remember it being a small aluminum tube/cylinder with three holes. One in center to bolt to existing frame guide. Another on each side to feed the cable housings through. I would guess that it was an existing piece that someone had around and someone just drilled the holes in it.

Something like this but obviously much much smaller.

Guess like an early London mod, but without the adjusting guides. cool

For the bottom cable, how does it attach?  I've seen most that it just slides in, but the picture on the first page (which is from Freestylin') it used a bolt.

It's made into the top cup, no bolt like the new tioga one's.

For a 1" quill stem, is there any real difference/advantage to the Odyssey Gyro versus the SST Oryg?  Which version of the Gyro is closest to the Oryg?

SST Oryg is a improved version of Odyssey Gyro and still in business today.

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-image … 7c0c08.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-image … 7ef740.jpg

http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-image … 7f17ee.jpg

http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-image … f8480.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.

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

I see the London Mod, but what is that other part? A center pull brake hanger like this?

Well that is a similar nut and bolt. I actually took a small piece of metal and drilled two holes and used two of the nuts and bolts to make the connector. cool
