After reading While pedaling standing up, bike crank gives in as if shifting, what is causing this? , I was thinking well for starters one should probably not be standing up to pedal under normal circumstances, is this an accruate assumption?
Its a practice that I follow to remain seated, but I am not sure if its right, or how to justify why one should not be standing to pedal, other than I feel it may be unsafe due to unpredictably in the drive train.
My practice is to instead be shifting gears to make the bicycle easier to pedal so that I can remain seated at all times?
Should we please remain seated at almost all times when on a multi-gear cycle and why?
