    Training skewers for disc brake wheels

    Could someone recommend training skewers for my roubaix that has disc brakes. These skewers are different than the friction lock skewers that I have had for 50 years, they screw into threads on one of the forks. However, the ends will not go into the part of the trainer that holds up bike. Can't find the correct term on amazon to search for this.

    Thanks.

    Thanks tlg. $50. Wow. I can see why you machined your
    Own. But a milling machine is going to set me back a bit....

    You'll need special axles, but make sure the axles will work with you trainer! I learned the hard way that some won't work together. What brand/model trainer?
