rollers troubleshooting (screeching)

my bike rollers are making this awful screeching sound. its coming from the band that connects the front roller to the back. the back roller isn't gripping the band and the band (and front roller) stay put while the back one spins and screeches. how do i fix this? new band? i bought this unit from someone on craigslist.

A new band should fix it. If the band is left on the rollers all of the time they tend to get stretched out. After I use my rollers I take the band off of the rollers on both sides and also off of one side of the "killer head wind" attachment, if you have one. You gotta love the picture Kreitler puts on the killer head wind unit. Especially since you're looking at it while your riding.
