I don't know about that... I have average proportions and I'm right on the lines for saddle height and reach and 1cm lower for bar height. I think it's good info, regardless.
In this chart, reach is "the distance from the tip of the saddle to the center of the handlebar", and stack is "the distance from the center of the front wheel to top of handlebar".
My understanding is that "reach" is measured directly from the saddle tip to the handlebar (i.e., along the hypotenuse of the imaginary triangle), and "stack" is measured directly from the center of fork dropout to the top of the handlebar (again, along the hypotenuse).
