Renthal Announces Zero Rise Handlebar
@Svinyard: This guy put it into words better than I could have. As for your question, I've ran a 60mm DM stem on my previous DH bikes for a while, without any issue. Doesn't feel as weird as people imagine it is, but the choice in stems is VERY limited (old Burgtec stems, old Truvativ stems, maybe ENVE is still making theirs in 60mm but that's outrageously expensive). Consider wider bars if you're not too wide already, it helps moving the body forward. Minnaar used to run like 50mm of spacers bellow a 60mm DM stem for example

Renthal Announces Zero Rise Handlebar
@Richt2000: technically, a higher rise bar would also shorten the reach (or the effective reach at your hands anyway), as the bars are usually rolled back a bit. But less than spacers under the stem yea (especially if you have a slack/DH head angle) I don't mind the spacers, considering how long the bikes are nowadays.

And here I am, sometimes wishing for a 50mm Fatbar ... Well, I'll keep stacking spacers under the stem :)

Opinion: E-bikes are Breeding the Components Riders Want
One thing about those TRP brakes, riders at their level use pad compounds you can't buy off the shelf, eeeeeeeextra soft organic pads that last only a few runs. Otherwise, they just lack power compared to what the rest of the paddocks run ... Still a good thing for TRP to have gotten the YT mob team in the bank for development and testing, but they really need better performing brakes (without loosing on the reliability or toughness!)
