Turbo trainer query.

Hi, can anyone let me know if I can use my old road bike on a turbo trainer? It has conventional hub nuts, not quick release.

Thanks

It would work on mine, but only you know the lash-up on yours.

Pretty sure that would work with my trainer as well. I don't use a trainer specific qr skewer either. Granted the cheap plastic nut on the non qr side is getting worn down.

The answer ranges from yes to yes by switching out your rear wheel with one of QR type.
