I have both the Cycleops Hammer Time Trainer with Emonda SLR 8 Disc (thru axel). I can't seem to get a thru axel that will work with this trainer as the lever on the DT Swiss thru axel hits the body of the trainer. I've emailed both Trek, DT Swiss, and Cycleops and they seem to not know the best way to fix this?
The thru axel is a 142mm x 12mm, 166mm, and 1.75 thread. Does anyone know what i can use to make this work? The adapter that Cycleops sells is for their Pro and Classic trainers. DT Swiss said they don't sell this size thru-axel with a removal lever, and Trek said to contact Cyclelops.
I can't believe I'm the first person that has had this issue? Before I bought the trainer, I was told that my bike will work with this trainer. But I can't seem to find a thru-axel that will work?
You can use the skewer that comes with that bike on the Hammer -- I have that bike and I have mounted it to that trainer with that skewer. Getting it started is challenging because as you noted the lever does hit the trainer, but it is possible. It is easier, however, to use a Kintetic thru axle adapter instead so you can just spin it on using a 6mm allen wrench. Make sure to get the Traxle Coarse T-2101 version.
Thank you SO much, cyclingguru!
