I understand that getting out of the saddle in a controlled fashion is beneficial to do once in a while.
What I don’t understand is how to do this effectively accomplish this with ERG enabled. I ask because unless I’m doing an effort that puts a lot of tension on my chain, say 200% above FTP, then my pedal strokes are bottoming out. Clearly, this quite detrimental, because I lose the fluidity of my pedal stroke.
This is troublesome for me, because I feel I’m more than I should be after a hard effort in the sense that I feel incredibly stiff. I think that I would feel better after hard efforts if I could effectively get out of the saddle and give my poor bum a break.
Does this make sense?
