It sounds like you just have the wrong position over the bike or maybe the wrong frame size. Why not try and get fitted on the bike before giving up on it. If you run into the same problems later, you will know what to do because you took a few minutes to figure it out now.
I know for me, a 1mm off and the saddle feels like crap. Getting fitted to the bike is important.
Maybe the stem and saddle are wrong for you. Maybe the height of both, maybe the bars are too narrow or wide. etc etc.
If you are coming from mountain bikes, ALL road bikes will feel harsh in comparison to those fat tired rides. If you are not used to road bikes, maybe you just need to get adjusted.
The Bianchi and Fuji aren't any better than the Redline.
---they are all equally good bikes, I know there is a Axis owner here, don't want to offend him
