Hello TR hive mind,
My 12-year old son is planning to enter his first season of bike racing this year. We bought him his first “race” bike, a Fuji Ace 24. It’s a sturdy little guy, 2x7 gearing, and should be a little rocket under him. That said, we can’t get him outside to train, as we’re in the middle of winter, and it’s snowy.
I’d like to get him hooked up to a trainer, but his bike doesn’t have the skewer type axle that I’m familiar with. My current smart trainer (Cyleops Magnus) is a wheel-on, with trainer skewer. Instead, his wheel is secured by hex nuts. (My apologies for not knowing all the technical terminology associated with bikes…yet!) See below:
What options do we have to get this guy on a trainer to get some work in?
Many thanks in advance!
