You are going to Denver /Boulder area, Its well stocked with Pro Level bike shops .
with the ability to see you on your bike ,and talk to you... Q&A..
better than any formula sight un seen..
Faster is A) work effort, B) aerodynamics [do you even want to assume that low bent over crouch?]
Go talk to the people that work in the bike shop where you live , and discuss it with them.. with your bike and the aches and pains to reduce..
Do you reach too far to be comfortable? Shorten and perhaps raise the stem height. feel cramped , then you change that length.. 6'3" you may need a bigger bike frame ..
Ride by a big plate glass window and see what your bike fit looks like..
seeing yourself ride by in the reflection..
some things just are not solvable with a formula,
Mechanoids can be made all the same.
people are all made different .. you would have to know lengths of all your extremities , arms legs , trunk length and all that .
have you made all those measurements?
