A fit issue

Generally, if you subscribe to the small frame theory you will need a longer stem to put you in the correct position. Unless you are a serious racer, you will probably be more comfortable when your stem is level or very slightly lower than your saddle. The high in the sky saddle and low handlebar looks very cool but isn't very comfortable for long periods of time.
So, to answer your question, try getting a taller frame next time and the riser stem won't be so much of an issue. Or you can check the Rivendell web site to read Grant Peterson's theory on frame fit.
