Hoping someone can advise.
I recently ordered a Saris Fluid2 trainer, which requires me to use a special quick release skewer on the rear wheel. However, my regular road bike is an old Acapulco Giant and the rear wheel is not on quick release hardware at all (photos below). I am not much of a cyclist and even less of a mechanic, under normal circumstances I'd just bring the bike in to my regular shop and have them do the switch, but at the moment we're completely isolated here at home. Would really appreciate whatever advice you can give on doing the switch. Do I need to worry about the gears coming apart when I disassemble? Do I need any adapter hardware? What else do I need to know?
Thanks in advance
edited to add: I see that someone has already asked about using a trainer with an existing solid axle. That is a super helpful question and answer but my original question - now also very well answered - was about swapping out the existing axle for a different one.
