Has anyone managed to mount a through axle rear wheel onto a turbo?
The only way I can think of doing it is sawing a turbo skewer in half and inserting in both ends.

Is there a better way as this doesn't seem like a very safe way for hard efforts?

Cheers. I'm not paying that, I only need it for a week or so while my TT bike is at the shop.

Looks like I'll have to swim or something Rolling Eyes Laughing

I've recently looked at this, as my new Canyon is thru axle. There are adaptors you can buy for a 'reasonable' price:

Why are you bothering with your Canyon on the trainer, I thought your TT bike was on the turbo all the time? Seems like an unecesarry faff to me.

Correct, I haven't bought an adapter for that reason. Cool your jets and grab yourself a stubbie Wink Very Happy
