For my Weyless rollers, I just bought some urethane round belting from McMaster-Carr (available in myriad diameters, and by the foot), cut it to length, joined the ends (heat to bubbling with an open flame of some sort, push together (it'll mushroom locally, and you'll get full-cross-section joint)), trimmed the seam back to round (with a razor blade or Xacto knife) to keep it quiet), and all was good. Practice a couple of times, if you've never done this before.

If you can measure an existing belt carefully, you might be able to find a pre-made one that'll work, like one of these:

...but it's safer and more satisfying to do it yourself (especially if your original belt is toast/missing, and you're not sure about the exact length).

Greetings all,

Does anyone have a current source of rubber belts/bands for Cinelli rollers??? Mine have dried up

and cracked. I bought an old roller racer dial some time back and want to get all these ready for

some roller races at the FarWest Milano CC clubhouse this spring.
