On a trainer, I don't know that it would matter. For urban aerobics, I love my new MTB. I have only a few days' riding experience with it, but so far, so good. If you can get the comfort you want with a MTB frame, I see no reason whatsoever not to put one on a trainer, especially since MTBs seem to offer better quality for the $$ than do road bikes. The $350 Specialized Rockhopper I just got has nice trigger shifters, very effective V-brakes, and good quality (though not light) components. Offhand, I can't think of any road bike for comprable prices that would offer as good a quality overall.
