    has anyone any experience setting up a Cervelo road Disc R3/R5 frame on a conventional turbo trainer?
    Due to the quarter turn RAT system through axle there seem to be no way of setting the bike on the trainer without changing both the RD hanger and the axle.
    The only company manufacturing a solution is the Robertaxleproject in the US selling it for $80.
    Wondering if anyone has found a different and cheaper solution?

    A very light bike too in very good condition. See pictures.

    I bought this bike in Italy from someone who had kept it 30 years in a garage. It has been kept in my flat for the following 6 years with very little use.
    The bike is perfectly usable and proved to be a real head turner in London. Would make a lovely classic clubman racer/audax, or even Fixed. This bikes rides beautifully and makes a really lovely vintage sound when freewheeling. Nice Italian classic with over 95% original parts and very little rust all over. Almost rust free underneath.
    Looking for £430
    Any questions or additional pictures, please ask. Happy to show the bike in person in SE15. Paypal accepted or cash on collection (Local pick up in Peckham or arrange courier)
