I have to say, since starting our tandem experience early this year, the one thing we've yet to master is the art of standing when we climb. I'm a big stander. When not on my tandem, I ride my fixie 80% of the time and I love hill climbing. Kath on the other hand doesn't like to stand at all. She claims (and maybe rightfully so) that it works her core better.
Every time I see Marco and Ruth out of their saddle it's a thing of beauty and I am envious beyond belief.We do work on it at times and mabe with the daVinci, we've made it a bit harder but hopefully we will grow into it. We do OK on the climbs and don't shy away from teh steep stuff but I still feel out of my element when I'm seated on a steep climb.
