Bands for rollers


Active Member
Long story short I came across a 35+ year old roller in my parents attic. A few quick searches and I am not coming up with much, likely due to using the wrong search terms. Can anyone point me in the right direction to find new straps/bands? I tired to use surgical tubing but that didn't work out to well.
Description: Overall length is 52.5 inches, Rollers are 4.5 inches in diameter, front to rear roller is 36 inches, 5 holes along the side 1 inch apart (guessing to adjust for size of bike)

Kreitler and Cycleops (Saris) sell belts. Even though they're round, they are considered belts.

This is one case where buying name brand is not a bad idea--you know they'll work, and the premium is fairly low, all things considered.

I successfully used McMaster-Carr "Quick-Connect Hollow-Core Round Belting" on some very similar (identical?) rollers.
Something like this belt and this connector. I can't remember what diameter. 3/16" sounds right but it may have been 1/4". I'm sure you could tell by measuring the groove in the rollers.
