Help with trainer compatibility


Nov 13, 2021
I have a Trek Lexa from 2016. It is fitted with an 8-speed sunrace cassette and chain. Would it be compatible with the kickr core? I know I need an 8-speed Shimano or SRAM cassette for the trainer but I am unsure as to whether my chain would be okay with it? Sorry for the lack of knowledge, I've not really looked into chains, cassettes etc before now.

Thank you in advance.
