i say u go with the long cable, its more responsive and easy to adjust

i mean if you see a good bike with gyro buy it you can always switch i to a straight cable later

hey carlsberg do u get the compete fit bikes were u stay as those are really good value for money but if u have narrowed it down to the mongoose or we the ppl go for the we the people cause their lighter stronger and u wont have to upgrade the components alll the time as with the mongoose its heavy as hell cheap shitty components the only good thing is the frame and the design of the rear breakes the way they are mounted buy the we the ppl they are really great bikes

Hey and welcome to BMXING
