I'm going to say 677mm for jumping and 800mm for landing. Am I right?

My DJ came with 760mm bars! It gives me just enough clearance to bar spin past my gut :D

This is probably what I have on my DJ. If your going to do bar spins 800 is pretty wide and at 677 (26.6") is pretty narrow for general control. Depending on how big you are, I would say between 720-760.

Well you can cut down 800mm bars. It is hard to stretch bars.

For this reason 800 all the way.
I actually bought a Spank Spike handlebar and reduced it from 800 to 775. I was hoping to reduce it down to 760 but the max cutoff was only 25mm. It still seems to work out pretty good though!
