Couple of interesting articles about the pros and cons of standing on your bike:

and the cons, which I'm sure Sir Sitzalot will love:

Cons of Standing

Enjoy!

Probably won't come as a surprise here, but I still have to say it, I don't agree with any of their "cons of standing"

If you squeeze the bike with your legs (from knees to feet) there is no reason to "death grip" the handle bars.
