I just set mine up initially to my natural athletic stance and tweaked it from there. Figure out what that is, and it's a good start for your stance width. Angles are a bit trickier depending on what kind of riding you want to do. I started mine out a +12, 0 and adjusted it from there over time. It's mostly personal preference and what you are comfortable with.

One way to figure athletic stance: stand on the lowest step of a set of stairs with both feet (about shoulder width apart) facing the floor. Close your eyes and just take an easy, natural hop down. Measure the width of your landing stance center foot to center foot. Do it a few times to get an approximate average.
