Magnetic Trainer

How does one mount a single speed, coaster brake beach cruiser on a magnetic bike trainer stand?

With great difficulty.
Seriously, I don't think you can safely mount a coaster brake bike on an indoor trainer, at least none of them I've seen. They all require either a QR or adapter for thru-axle setups.

Thanks. That's what I was afraid of. I was hyped about getting one then I watched some videos and wondered how on earth it would work with my bike.

TacX used to sell bolt-on axle adapter nuts that would work for this. I have as set for putting my BMX race bike on a trainer.

There were probably other, similar products.
