Dug out my old rollers over the weekend, as the Mrs has booted me off my turbo trainer cus she wants to use it and leave her bike in and set up on it :roll:

So, I dusted them off and there I was Sunday morning spinning away when all of a sudden 'TWANG', the roller band snaps! :shock:

Anyone know if a) I can get replacement bands and if so b) where from?

Ta :D

what does the 'band' look like ? ie.e is it like a caf fan belt or is it much thinner ? is it round in cross section or flat ? If you know the exact cross section and dimensions and length there are industrial suppliers who might be able to help;

if it's the standard round cross section band you can order them from
Kreitler in the US. Tacx would be another option and a bit closer.
I have Minoura rollers and from what the shop told me they all take
the same band.

I bought 1 3 weeks ago to fit the rollers a mate gave me for a surprise birthday present. It seemed really good quality............
