I need a second skewer for my Elite turbo trainer....

Postby Daniel B » Sun Mar 22, 2009 08:04 am

Hello all,

I need another skewer for my Elite Chrono oil/fluid turbo training item....

Google searches turn up nothing for sale though, all I seem to be able to find is TACX ones, which all say 'Designed for Tacx trainers'

Does this mean they will only work on a Tacx trainer, or is it what I need for my Elite?

Cheers

From what I've seen of the new Elite range the cups that hold the wheel are very similar to the Tacx ones.
I've used and sold Tacx skewers for use with Elite trainers with no issues.
If you have one laying around an old style Shimano one will also work OK

Dan,
I happen to have a TACX skewer which I can send to you to try ouy if you wish.
There is no cost as I no longer have the trainer and so will never use it.

Drop me a line if you are interested.
Dave
