If I run out of gears and and cadence heads down to <60 its out of the saddle stuff, I would never sit there and maintain that, once out of the saddle body weight does a lot of the work and your knees are straighter.
Why do you refuse to get out of the saddle?
And at the incline needed to justify 37rpm in 34-30, I'd be worried staying seated would mean I'd literally topple backwards! At least standing enables you to shift your bodyweight forward, with the added benefit of helping the downstroke as you suggested.
