I've grown to like the 4°/8° on the Answer carbon, and if I could get a touch less upsweep, I'd be quite happy - but I tend to rolled-in a bit (brake levers pointed down), so minimizing effective backsweep while keeping wrists neutral is a thing. I think I'm somewhere near 818-822mm of effective width, since I have the grips protruding almost a clamp width beyond the outer edge. Also, since my primary threat here are cacti and abrasive rocks, brushguards are a potentially viable solution (and this lets me run 40mm stems)... in your neck of the woods (with actual woods), it's an extant concern that brushguards do absolutely nothing for.
