These aren't bad bikes either and would be grand for what you'd be doing.

I wonder if I can order through a shop, or do they dictate what comes in? One other thing, if I got to the stage of doing a serious amount of road cycling, would that bike be comfortable over a period of hours on the road?

A lot of independent bike shops sell cubes as well as big retailers like Chain Reaction so you should have a better chance of getting one and the bigger retailers will usually post. As for riding on the road just stick a couple of more road dedicated tires on it blow em up to the highest psi they'll take lockout the forks and away ye go, just make sure to get the right size of bike and get the saddle height right and it will be dead on for a few hours on the road.

Not really mate.They all tend to make you a bit sore untill your arse and back of your nut sack get a bit leathery.My pal whos just bought the 4.5k bike had stuck a big fat,padded seat with 2 springs under it on the bike.Looks funny as f**k.

As Steve 66 said like a racer, but you can put your hands in a couple of different positions on the bars and some come with the racer style brakes and also a set of brakes like flat bars across the flat part of bar 👍

Look at those cyclo-cross bikes, they're a better bet if you're going to be mostly on the road with the odd trail here and there.

Peddles are an optional extra. You could always just smash a bolt through your ankle tighten in hole and away ye go.
