and you need one with a taller headtube as well as a shorter top tube.
For example? Which bike has such parameters?
I look at aero bikes only because it looks beautiful...
I do not think that this is bad.

I now rode 1 hour on the trainer.
I lowered the saddle in advance by 1 cm (now 75.5cm). Measured inseam, it turned out 86cm on average. I raised the saddle according to the formula Inseam * 0.883 . I stepped on the pedal with heel, checking if leg was straight. The leg was straight, but I think that it would be possible to lower the saddle a little more.

And .... in the end nothing helped. I again sat on the saddle as on needles.

Can it really be the problem in the saddle? In addition, to the saddle height, I did not change anything, because if I start to change everything at once, I do not understand at what stage would supposedly become comfortable sat on the bike.

Your leg shouldn't be straight. Go and lower it again. Ignore the measurement.
