trainer setup

Just got a free BlackBurn Mag Trackstand trainer from a guy at work. He likes to do spin classes and doesn't use it anymore. Looks like an older model and discontinued. Question is, my bikes have quick release and I can't figure out how I would mount it. Any ideas or is this designed for bolt on wheels?

Mine fits in the slots of the cups on the trainer. Now I had to get a different skewer for my wife bike, I think it was around $10.

Yep, I'm with Inst. Beck on this. You probably just need one that looks like the one in the link I've provided. You can probably get one at your LBS to avoid shipping charges.



Cheap Quick Release Skewer
