My hands and shoulders get sore quite easily. (I'm in my upper 60s.) I ride two kinds of rough roads:

Buzzy chip-seal. This is more of an annoyance. My 28mm GP5000 at low pressures...

I returned to 'serious' cycling this year after a couple decades of utility-only biking. Bought a cheap, old Cannondale 'sport' touring bike, to a great extent out of nostalgia as that was the last...

My wife’s bike is like that in the small-small. There have been no issues, and she will use that combination at times.
