Seems like research says there's really no difference between sitting or standing when climbing, they both have positives/negatives which practically net out.
I usually keep my rpm high, stay seated, and climb somewhat quickly. It seems more difficult to ride slowly up a hill when seated than climbing quickly up a hill seated. I notice I pull on my handlebars and shift my seat position so I have a little more seated power. Once near the top of the hill I start changing gears to prepare for the downhill so I can pedal and gain speed quicker when going down the hill. When going down the hill I lower my body to minimize wind resistance.
If the incline is really steep I will stand and slowly make my way up.
So I'm curious what most people do, do you sit or stand when climbing? Any other climbing strategies?
