What is the best way to bend a brake lever? I am going to be cutting my bars down, but wanted to find the best way to bend the lever if I ran it on the bend of the bars. Also, what is a good width to cut the bars to if you do a lot of barspin stuff and x-ups.

What bars do you have? You don't need supershort bars to X-up and barspin, it's all in your head. Oh yeah, don't bend ur lever, buy the dirt harry, it's already bent for bar bends.
