The position of the saddle and the handlebars are very closely linked. Once you’ve decided on the position of the former you should make sure that the latter is just below the former.
Make sure that the cycle handlebars are not out too far from the stem as you will run the risk of damaging them with serious implications for yourself should this happen mid-ride! Keep checking them regularly, as they are always under pressure.
