Trainer Question

I'm interested in getting a trainer for the winter but I only have a Giant Cypress bicycle. Will a trainer work on this bike, or do I need a road bike for trainers? THanks

Your Cypress will work fine on a trainer but you'll want to get a smooth tire. Otherwise it will sound like a motorcycle.
