    Cycle Ops Magneto Trainer and Skewer Question

    Got a used Cycle Ops but it didn't come w/ an included skewer. The instructions (downloaded) indicated that a special skewer is needed to fit the cones.

    1) Is that correct, do I need a special skewer for the rear?
    2) If so, anyone know where to get that?
    3) I also have an SS roadie w/ a bolt on axle. Will this work in the Cycle Ops?

    Thanks.

    1 - Use an old type steel QR with the lever coming out the side. These fit better and your nice ones will get all chewed up.

    2 - eBay or probably icyclesusa.com. This should work

    3 - I have used my track conversion (126mm bolt on) on my Cyclops wind.

    Thanks! Come to think of it, I have an old steel QR from when I bought an ebay bike. Perfect for the trainer.
