Ive grown accustomed to taller BMX style bars for street.. I'm running 6.5" (not sure what in CM) on my shock fork equipped street 26.. it takes a pretty steep HT angle to pull it off (im at 72.5 on mine)

I just picked up an NS District a few weeks ago from ZM Cycles. I'm in the US, but they are in Canada. Not sure how VAT and shipping would impact the price on your end, but it's worth checking them to see if they have any left.

And the 2020 stock is probably right around the corner.

A good alternative are bmx cruiser bars.They can be purchased for cheap compared to DJ specific bars.

Yeah they are too wide. Cut them to 740, perfect width

I'm using a 22.2 clamp stem, so there's a lot of BMX bar options. Currently running a 4" rise GT bar, but am switching to S&M 6.5" Bruiser bars on my rigid 26" DJ - fork is not suspension corrected.

Yeah, I cut mine down a little under an inch on each side. I think it was 3/4" off each end.

I found this tool to be invaluable for cutting bars, seatposts, and steerer tubes:

RIDGID 29963 Model 35S

Easy to use, and your results are going to be a lot nicer than if you take a saw to it.

Pipe cutter, pretty regular at any hardware store. Most bike work can be done using common tools- try and stay away from bike manufacturers that charge ridiculous prices for the same results- ie; "ParkTool" .. ripping off cyclists since day one

Love the pipe cutter method for cutting down bars. A hacksaw can also be used with great results if you're careful and use two ends of an old set of clamp on grips work wonders as a guide for the saw.
