- Using turbo trainer with solid axles 1 answer
I have a cheap bike (CCM Capri bike link: https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/ccm-capri-women-s-hybrid-bike-700c-0711734p.html). I want to use this bike with Tacx Bushido smart trainer. This bike has nut and bolt for the rear wheel. No through axle or quick release.
I have below questions:
- As the tire on this bike has a tread pattern on it. I want to replace it with an indoor trainer tire. Can you please recommend which tire size I should buy. Currently, I have 700x38C tire (as shown in the pic below). I am looking at something like the ones shown in this link: https://tacx.com/product/trainer-tyre/
- How should I use the device provided by the smart trainer (shown in the green pic) on my tire? Do I remove the rod by unscrewing the nut and bolt and use this device provided by the smart trainer?
- Is there a way to convert this nut and bolt configuration to through axle?
I have already checked this link and did not find it useful for my case: Smart trainer & CX bike compatibility
