I used a short (60mm? I think) Ritchey adjustable stem and that brought the bars up and back slightly. I also had a triple wrap on the flats and double on the drops for hand comfort. Upshot is I really like them. I get low to bore into the wind. You’ll have less leverage if you ride on the hoods or up but I quickly got used to that. One downside, real tight technical turns are difficult but for me, pretty rare on the beach. Switching back and forth between my road bike and the Fat is less of a transition.
