...there are some cheap ones out there that fit perfectly. Your LBS can help you. I had the same problem. Now the dilemma is: Ride with the cheap one all the time, or change back and forth.

I use an older bike (1980's Trek 1000) for the trainer I bought. I had to buy new skewers in order for my Performance trainer to hold the bike. Mine works fine now with the sort of flat edged big lever skewers that Performance has for $20. (had to buy the pair) Good luck I hear the Cyclops is the best. I bought a reconditioned Performance model. It sure seems hard to be motivated on a trainer. I try to use mine real early in the AM to get ready for the day. Good luck.
