Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

1. Replacement Skewer

2. No, why? I just have a set of used tires I swap out on the rear wheel.

Really you can use any traditional skewer, ie not a skewer with an exposed cam, with a smooth nut in a cycleops trainer. probably get one for free/cheap at your LBS.

and those tires are fine on trainers. but like pitboss said... just use an older tire

1a) awesome, thanks!
1b) awesomer, thanks!
2) yeah, i figured as much. i've used regular road tires with no issue, but i thought this possibly offered some sort of advantage i wasn't aware of.

<3 spare parts boxes!
I found an anti-theft skewer i bought a long time ago which fits a hub+cassette. More importantly, it mates perfectly with the trainer. Kinda stoked:
