The more I ride, the lazier I get. I don't like to stand much. When I walk into a room, I'd rather find a chair and sit. And I hate stairs. Have you ever noticed that no matter how in shape you think you are, climbing a set of stairs leaves you winded?
I get up at 5:30am all year long and climb mountains on my bike or skis. Yet when I need to climb a set of stairs, I am usually a somewhat breathless for a few seconds.
Could it be the maple bars that causes this?
