Turbotrainer question

I'm thinking about getting a trainer, but I have a track bike and I'm not sure if the narrower and nutted axle will work with any trainers (most seem to take a QR, although I have no idea how it actually all fits together). So, do any or all trainers take a 120mm nutted back axle?

Hey Jonny! I own a Cyclops Fluid 2 and have it connected to my MTB that has nutted wheels in the back with no problems. The nut is a little bit smaller then my road bike's QR, but the trainer puts pressure from the sides to hold it in place not around the nut. If your concerned and your LBS doesn't have any idea, then take the bike down to the store and hook it and see; also this way you can test ride whichever trainer you want.

What about the narrowness of the hub? 120mm OLN, overall axle probably isn't that much shorter than a regular QR, I don't imagine there'd be a problem, but much better to discovre it before I buy
