Generally speaking no, I certainly know when I've been out for 3-4 hrs but nothing that I would not expect from that length of time exercising, certainly not crippling back/wrist/knee pain which aeems to be the most common complaint.
I think my worry is that when I'm going through the new bike purchase process the fit that I'm 'given' will be in-appropriate, wrong is the the er...wrong word to use.

- Updated: Norwich Police seek driver who tweeted about collision with cyclist1 year 13 weeks agoI don't know what the legal
I don't know what the legal outcome will be, but her employer has responded which may or not lead her to re-think her career options. And her name is all over the Internet, even gracing the pages of the national newspapers - The Times had an article on it today - relaying mostly what is on here - probably used this site to compile the article. She's probably f**ked her life up for now, which, given this cyclist wasn't actually killed or seriously injured (luckily), is actually a shame. If anything comes out of it, hopefully that is, it might make some drivers who see cyclists as an annoyance to the point of knocking one off his/her bike for a laff think more carefully now before they feel the wrath of the twittersphere and cycling community even when the legal system might not do much. I think that is a pretty stiff punishment in itself.

Do you ever get saddle sores? Pain anywhere? Shoulder or neck tension? Aches/pains after long rides?
If no to all of the above, then maybe a bike fit can't help you. Even if you're just 'reasonably' happy, you probably have the fit sufficiently close that you won't buy the wrong size frame, which is the key thing.

Emma Way must be a real empty-head: filming and posting her speedometer at 95mph, knocking-down a cyclist, then bragging about it on twitter, with the #bloodycyclists hashtag. Not the brightest . . . , etc, etc.
A week or two ago I was cycling along a road when a silver penis-extension Mercedes deliberately pulled out in front of me.
How did I know it was a deliberate act, you ask?
I could see the driver smirking and laughing in his wing mirror as he moved off, caused me to hit the brakes, skid and swerve.
The fact that I could see him in such detail also goes to show how close I was, about 10metres and travelling at about 20-25mph, when he pulled out.
He wasn't laughing when he got out, around the corner, to have a go only to see me jump off my bike and head straight for him, fists ready.
He backed down, got back in his car and drove off, the cowardly bully.
You do, occasionally, get these f*ckwits; happily and luckily nobody was seriously injured or killed in this incident, as Emma Sh*t-for-brains Way accidentally outed herself, proving that there are much more stupid birds in Norfolk than the turkeys.

I think the rider in green having been 'dropped' on the previous climb, cycles up to the blue rider and says in a Charles Hawtrey voice 'Hello, me again!'.

If you're happy with your current setup, confident about making adjustments for yourself and suffering no innjury or other ill-effects then I don't think you really need it.
No doubt a bike fitter would say that you should do it to ensure that you aren't doing something that will result in a long-term problem which may not be apparent now but, well, they would, wouldn't they.
I've had them done to solve specific problems and I have nothing against them.
But I suspect the chances of being told "You know what, you look fine" are somewhat smaller than they ought to be.
Like lawyers they will always feel obliged to make some change, just to show it was worth the fee.

It'd probably be quite handy for picking up Class A gear at the same time.

Wow! Im really struggling to work out how this bike has scored 6/10!
First of all lets look at what this bike is for. Its an all rounder, as you said yourself, a jack of all trades and a master of none. That is what it is marketed as. Its for the every day rider/commuter who fancies some soft trail riding at the weekends.
You then seem to compare it to a road bike and then to a MTB?! and statements like "but the forks are not up to the quality of a £1000 MTB." Of course they're not, thats not what they are for.
Im really confused by this review. You seem to get the point of the bike and then completely miss it at the end.

Personality tests as part of the driving exam?
What is incredulous is that with every other form of licensing, or official documentation, you are expected to renew it on a regular basis (passports, for instance).
With a driving license, you could pass your test at 17 and then never face having to renew your license again, nor be required to submit to eye testing.
+1 for everything that zanf says.
In no other form of transport (in fact no other area of general life) would this be tolerated.
If you were to walk up to a H&S person now and say "I'd like to introduce a form of transport where we only test once, we have unqualified people with no PPE filling up cars unsupervised in public with highly flammable liquid, we have no solid enforcement structure but hey, it'll make life so easy for everyone" he'd look at you as if you were insane.
It simply wouldn't be tolerated but, becasue we've kind of evolved alongside it, it's become accepted. Hundreds of deaths per year, millions in insurance payouts, tens of billions of pounds of infrastructure; it's all regarded as an acceptable cost for "free and easy" movement.
