    It seems to me that there'd be a market for delta trikes trainers, but honestly I don't know of anybody who makes one. Maybe you're the first one in the history of the world to ask this question? This might require a custom-made solution.

    Might meed a standard trainer on one side and a roller from Home depot on the other. As long as you can set the trainer to your specific wheel size your good to go.

    You need two rollers, like what are shown here: http://www.twbents.com.tw/HTM/e-trainer.htm

    I don't see how the resistance can be varied, but rollers would make the job of attaching a trike easier. So how DO you adjust the resistance? Trainers will have a resistance unit, often with fins to dissipate the heat. The roller unit has... nothing.

    I dunno. That site says they're adjustable, but I don't know how.

    I found another trainer that may work, you can see it here:

    This one definitely looks like it's adjustable.
