    DJs are extremely heavy. My urban riding buddy's DJ has a lot of play in the bushings after very little use. DJ's SSV dampers make the the fork pack up at high speed and feel harsh. PIKEs lack progressivity in the stroke so you'll need to run a heavier spring for DJing than for trail riding. The dampers are top notch.
