if the saddle feels hard, it probably is. I haven't left a stock saddle on a bike yet. you'll find one you like eventually, and yes, drop bar road bikes certainly do feel a lot more zippy.
I would like to find a way to transport my planes via backpack so I could ride down to the park instead of driving.
First thing is you need good quality knix. Unfortunately most bike seats on road bikes are unrideable without these. I don't agree with that but that's another topic...
Second, are you sitting far back enough on the seat? If you don't you're going to get all kinds of issues. Judging from what you said about the lentoverness (??) of the bike I reckon this could be a problem.
A two hour ride is a good starting distance though. Maybe give it a bit longer, but you should be springing off the bike after two hours without any arse pain or something is wrong. For example, I did 95k yesterday and no pain whatsoever.
Once you can climb hills on a bike it's all downhill.
Hopefully I'll know what that's like..... one day.
Do you fly model planes Robbie? Are you on RC Groups "Adelaide thread"?
Any minute not spent on my bike is a minute wasted.
