Thanks, Christian! This is a well stated position on what the ultimate goal is, with some good examples of things that change it.

The next thing for me will be to experiment with fore/aft positioning, perhaps by moving my saddle back 1 cm along with shortening my stem by 1 cm. That's not all that changes, of course, but you get the idea. And then I'll have to pay attention to how it feels.

So, yeah, KOPS is a great place to start. Where you go from there depends on a whole host of things that will be different for each rider.

Make sure you take copious notes about your current position before you touch anything! And only change one thing at a time, as they are all interconnected. Cleat position included. If you are riding pain free now, you have to ask yourself what you are trying to achieve with change (has to be more than just for the sake of change).
