    Hi
    I ride a petite road bike - xxs Scott Contessa Speedster 30sp Shimano 105.
    I use a Magturbo Minoura trainer. Infact any trainer should fit if you have standard 700cc tyres. I'm not sure if it fits 650 - can't see why not
    good luck
    Sam

    We have a blackburn ultrastand, and that fits both my 700c bike and my wife's 650c bike. Bought this because it was specified compatible with 650c. I read that some tacx require an adapter to fit 650c wheels, which is OK if you use only 650c, but cumbersome if you switch between 650c an 700c. On ours, it is just a matter of turning the tightening know a couple of turns.
