I am curious, are you thin / slim and oldish, also was it a leather saddle?
Overweight could also explain, that's similar to extreme riding of course.........like a heavy rucksack ouch.
On the turbo it can be uncomfortable after an hour , feels like a day, sweat and heat and lack of ventilation along with not reacting to bumps, also bum not leaving saddle, and continuous effort which is not normal real riding.
And off road I once stopped with pain after less than a mile (my saddle is good for 300 miles ((continuous ride)) with little fatigue normally) Rucksack did not help but normally ok, put it down to track strewn with rocks.
Much is said about higher bars on bikes but puts more weight on bum, so I always find this counter intuitive along with bad ergonomics.......vicious circle...........
Sorry for late reply. Have been through a lot of this before. I am 5ft 4ins, 61 kgs, very slim obviously with that weight, pretty fit as I play tennis two evenings per week and lots of cycling. Was measured for the right bike and have subsequently changed the stem and a few bits as it never felt right. Very comfortable with the bike. I ditched the Brooks leather saddle that I tried and several others. Many different cycling clothes. Tried lot of different suggestions by well meaning folks, but I think the problem is my body ie. my sit bones. Thanks for your input though.
