I used to have a particular operating bike made by an sadly now defunct firm in Australia (run4). They described utilizing their bike as “operating on air”. That’s what standing as much as pedal feels wish to me on an everyday bike, and it’s particularly nice while you get the gearing proper. My Trek is now dialed in completely with the 52-tooth chainring (though I had a slight glitch putting in it).
I take pleasure in each zoning out for a few hours for a standing cruise and hitting standing intervals exhausting. “Stand-up pedalling” is now my favourite train. If I used to be allowed to do “actual” operating I’d in all probability be doing a few of that, too, however “operating on air” is a pleasant substitute.
