Turbo trainer QR skewer

I was lucky enough to get one of these for my birthday: http://www.wiggle.co.uk/p/Cycle/7/Minoura_VFS_150_Fluid_Trainer/5360020940/ which I'm very happy about. Have tried it out with my Etape and it's fantastic - much smoother and more realistic than I expected. My question is whether it's strictly necessary to use the QR skewer they supply or would it be ok to just keep the Enigma one on? The Minoura one looks a bit stronger but that might just be because it's cheaper/heavier... Any advice would be much appreciated.

Hi Martin

I'd say use the heavier QR for the turbo. Turbo trainers do place a little more stress on a bike than normal riding and thats probably why the trainer came with its own QR, that and it will be a better fit.

Best regards

Thanks Mark - sorry for the slow acknowledgement. I only just remembered I asked this question!
