Hey I am not sure whether or not to put a detangler on my new DJ I am building. I plan to do tailwhips and barspins but I am not sure if it would be worth it to buy a gyro or just rock a long cable. Help please!

well if you are not planning to do more than 2 bars or whips in a set . then no. Practice brake less till you get use to it . Then run a longer cable . A lot of pain in the ass working on a gyro setup and they usually become very tedious in the future to maintain proper braking . Now if you do run more than 3 bars and multi whips . look into the dartmoor set up or a odyssey gtr . Hydro setups in the states are rare since the new hardware has not been released yet and te atomlab if you find one did not work very well . The straightline is suppose to be fab . But that is what they claim and only pro's have it now

Keep your eyes peeled on a release announcing our collaboration with Cane Creek. We got together and will release a custom headset that will be spec'd on a few key bike brands that will hold your Hydro in place.

It is only on Montgomery/Semenuk/McCaul/Groves/Berrecloth's bikes right now but stepping into production soon so you can get one too. Costs and stuff to follow but regardless of what system you try and run, keep room on the steer tube for them, at least 1inch.

Sorry guys, so hard to be everywhere at once, I never saw any of these.

Basically just think ahead, keep 1 inch plus a few mm's on the steertube. We are biting our tongues for a bit but we will launch a system with Cane Creek that will hold our Hydro onto the bike. Montgomery/ McCaul/Semenuk all have the systems but i'm not ready with the hydros for sale yet, so buying time until gen 3 comes out.

Most likely Jumpship June 22-24 we'll go live!
