....I'm supposedly gettin' a Commandante.....maybe :D While I wait, I need to know a thing or two about bar height.

I'm 5'11" with roughly a 31 inch inseam and am getting an 18" frame. I'm curious as to what other owners of 18" frames are finding their saddle to bar drop measurements to be. Or to put it more succinctly, at my height, and in the interest of adjustability, do I want a riser bar or a flat bar for this baby?

I too have a Commandante in a 18. I have a 30 inch inseam and 5'8. I had one in a 16 but they size smaller. My saddle to stem drop is 3 1/2 cm. I'm riding a riser bar and have had the Mary bar on there too. The 1 inch rise I found to be a bit more comfy. Good Luck.
