Setting up the Jet Black Z1 Pro Fluid trainer for use takes the same process as all other standard turbo trainers. When you unpack it, (it goes down almost flat, which is a good feature as it makes it easier to store) and put it in your preferred position, you will have to pass the proprietary QR skewer through the rear hub. Just so you know, the skewer ends are placed in small cups which are shifted by screwing them in or out. The Jet Black Z1 Pro Fluid’s SQR system (actually a large QR lever) means that after the initial set up, getting on the bike is swift and simple. A roller is then pushed up against the tyre and fixated in place by turning a big knob. A locknut secures everything in place.
