What kind of trainer, what are your triner workouts,and how are you measuring your effort on the trainer?
Moving from the ellipitcal trainer to more bike specific work should increase, not decrease your on bike performance as youmove outof base phase.
However, if your ellipitical workouts were very intense, and you're not pushing yourself hard enough on the trainer, your fitness could drop when you stopped doing the elipitcal.
Also, how long are your trianer workouts vs your elliptical workouts? If I'm following your OP, it sound like you mave cut your training workload during the week in half, which definitely could affect how strong you're riding.
Personally, I'd try to get my training workload and intensity back to the point it was with the ellipitcal,and the trainer, but all of it on the trainer (or the road).
