First and foremost I would sort those brake cables. They're so long after the cable anchor they could easily swing over and get caught in the rotors, causing your brakes to lock up without warning. Eek

If it aint broke (or about to break) don't replace it. Subjectively, you could "upgrade" everything

You could definitely use some bar ends though (they can literally save your life)

This this this. I had a really random stack once and ended up with my bars directly into my lower guts. Fully slammed down onto them. At first the pain was so extreme i couldn't walk or even move. After a day, a large section around my hip was totally numb. There was bruising from belly button to knee for weeks. Two years later and i still have some nerve damage and numbness in the area. I had bar ends.

You can get by with just the nylon ones that come stock with most aftermarket BMX grips.

I always ran the solid ended ones with set screws (Fly,Macneil), but they're no longer sold under those names. Ebay has some generic ones called Savage that are the same.

These are the set screw type:

The Fly were pretty good too if you can find them. (My local BMX shop has them) :

I have made some for a few of my own bikes:

What fork would you get
to be fair i wouldnt buy an expensive fork if my Pike DJ broke. Brobably a Manitou Circus Expert, theyre totally amazing and theyre half the price than a Pike DJ. Think aroun 350$ for one, or you could get the Manitou Circus Sport/Comp one, theyre abit more "standard" model than the Expert one and abit cheaper. But it works amazing aswell!

Yeah the circus expert is the one to get, but is 20mm axle, so you would need new hub, or wheel. But unless you are casing jumps or hitting decent gaps, or stairs/flat drops, it's probably not worth upgrading right away (still a good idea though)
