StarTrac ETR Walking Belt Friction
I have been running on StarTrac ETRs religiously for 12 years. Without fail, it always seems that the walking belt gets some type of friction issue. It will run fine for 3 months with a new beIt, then the issue starts. It feels like my legs are just pounding into the deck with each step, like all of a sudden my quads are being asked to handle 100% of the load vs the belt actually pulling my leg behind me. The deck isn't worn and the belt has 1500 miles on it, just waxed. It should be able to handle double that mileage. I also weigh less than 100 lbs, so I'm not overloading it.
