As it happens, I too push the cleats as far back as possible, which moves the foot forward a half-inch or so. This is to counter my tendency to ride too much on my toes, which puts a big load on the calves instead of the quads. So strictly speaking, the ball of my foot is a little forward of the spindle. There's not much in it, though.
