Comfort-wise the bike remains a bit of a disaster. Something about the bars and the seat makes me slouch, and the stiff suspension and crappy area roads act like a pile driver to the spine.
I think the problem is being relatively fixed in position with the tractor seat. I don't think anything short of a bench seat is going to solve this for me. I do think the position of the bars is contributing though, so I'm going to swap them with some Pro-Tapers before I go splurge on the seat.
