When I built my S.I.R.9 I did so with a handlebar and stem that I had lying around. Now I am planning to upgrade to a new cockpit. Easton EC70 wide (685) and Ritchey WCS stem. I would like to keep the same ergonomics that I have now, as far as reach and height goes. The problem is I don't know what specs on the stem or handlebar are. The handlebars are Azonic risers, around 685mm wide, and I don't know the rise or sweep. The stem is a Titec that I flipped to account for the rise in the bars. I don't know the angle, and will measure the length asap.

Anyone have suggestions on how I could dial in the position with a new stem and bars? Where to measure from, etc.? I really like where everything is at right now, and don't want to screw up and be uncomfortable.

if you like what you have now, why change it?

you can measure from the seat tip to your stem / handlebar junction.
measure from the ground to your handlebar grips.
you should be able then to see what you are trying to hit with the new set up.
