when fitting a bike, i use kops as a starting point. i find that people with longer shins tend to prefer to have the saddle backed off a bike, and people with longer thighs prefer to have it a bit forward. but, in a fit, you really have to rely on the feedback of the person you're fitting. comfort is not something that you can reduce to numbers and rules. you have to ask how the rider feels. it's a bit time consuming, but i find that it works.
