Anthony Messere blew up the hillside as a fifteen-year-old at Crankworx Whistler back in 2011, front flipping the first drop and boosting higher than anybody else on the course. He only managed 3rd thanks to some crashes but was easily the peoples' champion on that day. Since then, Messere has won numerous FMB events, and 2018 is his second year riding for Rose Bikes, the direct sale brand from Germany.
The gyro system is made by a friend of Messere in a Vancouver garage. Anthony says that performance of hydraulic gyros is not super reliable, cables are the way to go for peace of mind. With gyros falling out of favour in the BMX world, it's getting harder to find splitter cables to convert one cable to two, especially in a length long enough for a mountain bike, they also add friction. Anthony runs two cables the full length of the system, using a modified Odyssey BMX brake lever and simply bolting two cables into the Avid brake caliper.
The cable actuated disc brake uses two full-length cables from the lever to the gyro, and from the gyro to the caliper.
An Odyssey BMX lever is modified to take two cables.
