Specialised SCS system and direct drive turbo trainers help

would anyone be able to help.

I have been considering buying a specialised converged carbon (either the comp or expert).

My understanding is these come with a 135x12 Through axel on the rear, with Specialised SCS system.

I have read that only SCS wheels / hubs will work with these bikes.

However I also planned on getting a turbo trainer, as I would like to do a bit of training on the evening when my little boy is in bed was looking at the Tacx Neo, as it is the quietest, the Tacx neo is a direct drive turbo trainer, and was wondering if I will have the same issues as you get with non SCS wheels.

Does anyone know if these are comparable, I would ideally not want to recalibrate the rear derailed for Turbo and non Turbo rides as a) I don't know how really, and b) It is likely to alternate a lot.

I have tried Tacx and specialised without much success recently.

any help or suggestions would be great,

    Ive done it the other way round. Ive bought the expert but now don;t know how to use it on a turbo.
    Rollers for me
