My Old Fan Trainer doesn't work with new bike wheels?(1 post)

My Old Fan Trainer doesn't work with new bike wheels?LKDog
Aug 16, 2003 8:26 PM
Just bought a new LeMond Zurich after riding an old Bridgestone 450 for the past 15 years.

Am also trying clipless pedals for the first time. Thought I would set bike up on my old Nagaoka fan trainer just to get used to the pedals, but the Bontrager quick release wheel lever doesn't have a little hub like the quick release on my old wheels on the Bridgestone.

What does someone do in this case? I looked at some newer trainers on Nashbar's website to see if the newer ones have some type of adapter for the Bontragers, but the trainers look about the same as they did 15 years ago.

Anybody deal with this before?
Thanks for your help.
