Mtb stems only go up to about 130mm and those are flimsy XC stems. I've spent some time looking and there ate not any goo options. I really think something like a 150x20 or maybe even less rise, then role your bars back a bit so your wrists don't die and you don't hit your chest so easily.
I use a Monty 160x24 stem with a high rise DH bar. The DH bar is because they have minimal up sweep so when i role them far forward it doesn't turn into forward sweep.
It is not a perfect setup. I wish the bar had more back sweep so they would have more up sweep when rolled forward and my set up is waaaaay to heavy for gram counting trials riders. I also hate the Monty stem (I don't like the sloped top cap, it comes with bolts that are too short, and I don't like the 2 bolt bar clamp.)
Yep I'm another "trials rider" (forum dweller) that constantly bitches about trials.
