The amount of spacers you use should be based on fit, not looks.

^^ as above.
Slam it. Find out how it feels. You're a big boy,(maybe a girl). You don't need a forum to tell you how to experiment with your bike set up. Just don't cut the steerer tube when you slam it. That way you can go back.

The problem with bull horns is the lack of variation in hand positions. Hands are always at one level.
Lower the stem. Good for going hard. But not so much for just cruising along slowly.
And the opposite is true too. You want to get your hands lower for more power, less wind but you can't. Yet it's comfortable for dawdling around.
It's a compromise. Play around with it.
