    Ventana El Comandante - stem recommendations

    I'm having a 1st generation Ventana El Comandante (last one in stock!) frame built up, and to get the bar height basically level with the saddle, I was wondering if anyone with my similar dimensions and frame size might have any recommendations on what angle/length of stem and spacers to use?

    I'm 5' 10" with a 32" inseam. Frame size will be 18". Thanks for any insight! I'm going to drop the parts off at Ventana to have them do the build.

    I'm 5'9' with an 18" Padrino and using a Thomson 90mm stem with 0 rise and 1 small spacer under the stem, not sure what size With this set-up, the bars are below the saddle.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    On both my 19" El Toro, and 19" El Chiquillo (650B)I run 0 Rise 80mm stems with 29" Bars. 6' 33" inseam. No spacers on the Toro (Much longer headtube) and 5mm on the Chiquillo, both are well below my bars that way though.
