Can someone tell me where I can find a replacement belt(s) for the American Classic rollers? My rollers have the large PVC drums.
The belts are slipping to the point I cannot ride them.
I've looked everywhere and I don't have the cash for new rollers.

Those rollers haven't been made in years, but your best bet is to email Bill Shook at American Classic. Their website is amclassic.com

Bill has taken back control of American Classic after it being under another company for a while. He may still have some parts lying around for you.

Kreitler rollers have thick belts that are about 6mm in diameter. Performance rollers have a thinner belt. These are the only two rollers that I have experience with. The length of the belts on all rollers are about the same. The Drums are all about the same size and they have a lot of give because the have to stretch to accomidate different wheelbases.

If you're going to get a new belt anyway you might want to try this before you do; cut a 1/2" piece out of your belt. Use a flame, lighter or candle to heat both newly cut ends just to the point of melting. Press the ends together. Let cool and reinstall. Most of these belts are heat joined in the factory. Worked for me - twice.
