We know, there’s no such thing as a stupid question. But there are some questions you might not want to ask your local shop or riding buddies. AASQ is our weekly series where we get to the bottom of your questions – serious or otherwise. Hit the link at the bottom of the post to submit your own question!

Every year around this time, indoor cycling becomes a popular topic of conversation. While a controversial Peloton ad may be in the current media spotlight, stationary bikes and indoor cycle trainers go way back – long before trainers ever got ‘smart’. Saris’ current trainer options can trace their lineage back to the days of CycleOps in the mid ’90s before being acquired by the Saris Cycling Group in 1999.

Now, Saris offers a range of indoor cycling product from rollers, to basic trainers, and of course, the latest Direct Drive smart trainers to take advantage of popular training programs like Zwift.

For our next AASQ, we’re giving you the opportunity to ask all of your indoor cycling related questions, and we’ll get the answers straight from Saris. This could be specific questions about smart trainers, the best set up for your home training studio, questions about bike use on various trainers, and anything else you can think of! Send in your questions through the link below, and we’ll be back with the answers next week!

    Why on the H3 is the upper most pulley smooth/textured, when the belt is ribbed length wise like an automotive serpentine belt. The lower pulley has notched to mate to the belt, but the upper one does not, causing occasional belt slip. I know you have started sanding the upper pulleys to fix this, but I’m wondering from an engineering standpoint why you didn’t just make the upper pulley with notches to mate to the belt like it’s seen in cars or even on the lower pulley in the H3
