I'm a "heel dropper" so none of the things you said there applies to me.

I understand that you think you have your frame fit setup correctly, but all it takes is one quite glance at the picture of your bike, and scanning over your ideas to easily determine that whatever you're riding is NOT the right size for you, even though you genuinely do think it works well for you. If you dont even have the saddle set to baseline, this is just further proof of that.
This is why you got many replies where they didn't find your guide useful. Not everyone wants endurance-oriented fit (racing fit will often be few sizes smaller). Not everyone has the same pedaling style. Indeed, pedaling style will have a considerable influence in bike fit.
