Knee over pedal spindle is one of those measurements come up with to teach people who shouldn't be fitting how to fit. If you're looking to get your center of gravity over the pedal, and you have long femurs and a short torso, you should expect to have your knee past the pedal spindle. If that really bothers you, raise the front wheel a few inches and try again - then you can tell people your fit is optimized for climbing...

Seriously, if you can isolate the glutes and crank the biggest gear on the bike for 15 minutes, you probably already know more than the bike fitters who use KOPS just from personal experience.
