I run 720mm on all my DJ bikes, 750mm on full sus bikes. Grips I prefer lock on since I dont do any barspin so dont care much, I really like Sensus Disisdaboss grips and Chromag Palmskin, by far my favourite grips.
As for gear ratio on DJ bikes, I have 32-13 and 25-10.

My go-to grips have been Odyssey, but most soft BMX grips feel pretty similar imo.

Anyone cut the brake mount off their forks? I've always considered doing it (yes, solely for the aesthetic)

I prepped and painted my Argyle last night (white to black) and I sort of regret not taking a cutting wheel to it first.I'd decided it was a good idea on my last Argyle before I sold my old suburban. Not sure of the possible negative effects though!

I've done it on several forks. Zero issues other than maybe losing some resale value!

Before I order a set, are the pike dj's really that good? My LBS has said he can do them to me for £770 but the retail is actually way above £800!

yes, pike dj is amazing, still wish it had a 20mm axle but that's my only semi complaint
