    wide bar stem?

    wassup everyone just in need of some ideas for a new stem that is going to be good for wide bars. im running answer pro-taper 780mm bars. I really just want it to be stiff, and in 31.8mm bar clamp and a have 1 1/8th steerer tube.

    also not a direct mount!
    Looking for a 7.87 x 2.25mm shock, any brand any age that runs well!! cheap would be appreciated!
