I previously posted this message in the 'Training' section but then thought that here might be more appropriate:

Hi,

I am looking at buying a turbo trainer to use with my track bike (Fuji Track 2009), I am somewhat confused as to how I would attach my track nuts to the trainer as I know some use QR skewers.

Does anybody know if I could use this trainer with my bike?

Thanks for any advice/help

    You need to replace the OE track nuts for Tacx track nuts, they are longer and will take up the differance in axle widths.

    "You only need two tools: WD40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD40. If it moves and it shouldn't, use duct tape"

    My partner has a Cyclops turbo and the rear attachment accepts both tracknuts or a quick release. Is there a cut out on one side for the lever?

    I've mnoticed this, but be careful you don't damage and round off the nuts.
