    Skewer question for trainer

    Do I need a different/special skewer when on the trainer? I currently have Shimano Dura Ace C24 wheels with DA skewers.

    Thank you in advance.

    Nowadays new trainers come with a heavy-duty rear skewer.

    A trainer will chew up your expensive alloy skewer. Most trainers come with one or just buy a cheap steel one from the LBS.
