Without pictures, it's hard to understand your set up. Most indoor bike on trainers have a clamp and release which goes over your rear wheel, the one side for the M5 bike nut and the other for the QR handle. The trainer should accommodate a wheel mounted with standard bolts as well.

Is the problem because the rear forks are not wide enough to hold the bike in the trainer? I had problems fitting an older steel bike in my trainer a few years back so I picked up a second hand aluminum road bike instead but I know others do it with no problems.
