My son parked his bike in front of a loca store someone messed up his front brake (I think on purpose) the wire connecting the brake pads on the bike - is loose and the brake pads won't...

Sorry to hear about your sons bike have been messed up. First you have to check out if the brake works. Pull it with your fingers (brake itself, where the cable is attached). If it squeezes and springs back, there is no probs. Then loosen the cable and check if the brake lever works (use it as if you are braking). It should go down and spring back itself. If it does, there is no probs. In that case all you have to do is to loosen the cable at the brake itself and then re-fit it by pulling the cable with pliers and securing it with the appropriate screw.

I need help trying to install tektro front brake setup on my bmx bike.. i think they are caliper brakes.

Google "install tektro front brake download" - lots of hits and docs from Tektro.

The brakes type tektro cannot stop the byke.

The brake shoes may be worn out or they are installed wrong, you have to set the brake shoe so that the front of the shoe is toed in to touch the rim first, in other words, it has to hit it first. Brakes setting is really not for amateurs, have someone who really knows bikes look at them because your life depends on it being right.

My son is trying to fit a gyro brake system to his bmx, can you offer any instructions / diagrams on how to do this please. Thanks

Take it to a professional because it entails brake adjustment and if he wants to do tricks, it would be dangerous if they are not working properly.
