I am letting a friend borrow my Kurt Kinetic Trainer for the week to see if he wants to get a trainer. When setting it up last night the rear wheel kept popping out of the skewer holder because it wouldn't seat all the way in due to the design of the quick release lever. Anyone have any history like this?
It finally stayed seated after trial and error.
The skewer is one of the red colored aluminum ones with the flat QR lever.

Thanks Rocco

i've got the same skewer
you've just got to be extra cautious setting it up.

it can get stable though.

either way you should always use the SS skewer provided with most trainers
most areen't designed for the compression load trainers expose them to. Of course i wouldn't know the above if i didn't do it anyway...

Easiest and cheapest way to get around this is go to your LBS, and ask them for a simple old school round and heavy skewer, use that on your trainer. You'll tear something up if you keep using the Rolf skewer not matter how careful you are.

Thanks

Thanks for the feedback and my KK Trainer did not come with a skewer. Was it supposed to?
