Trainer lean(4 posts)

My experience with trainers has been frustrating. They all have developed a lean to the left sooner or later. No amount of tightening of the skewer clamp prevents this. I should say I've had this problem with three different trainers. Could this be a skewer problem, as the common denominator has been the bike?

Thanks

I've noticed this too. I turn my front wheel slightly to offset the lean. I agree with you about the skewers. Those older, cheap, skewers with metal fittings at both ends seem to help alleviate this condition. The lean can get on your nerves after a while.

I have the same problem. Just set one side up with a towel or something.
