Unless you want to change your reach/bar location, I wouldn't bother.

What do you mean by some pikes? Are you talking about the fork? If so, I think one Pike will be fine...you don't need to get any more.

What's wrong with the response? I guess I have to clarify...if you are short on money and are wondering what to change, I wouldn't bother with something you are not sure about. You'll see much more of a performance difference from a fork than a stem/handlebar change.

But you actually have two brakes on your bike while you only have one fork.
