These are all great questions. I have my Catrike on an old Norco trainer, a single barrel on the rear wheel. But to adapt the unit for 20" wheels, I had to raise the roller. To "level" everything out, I placed 6x6 posts under the two front wheels. Chain and derailleur clearance is not an issue; everything looks and feels (and sounds) just like I'm on the road. The trike "walks" a little as I ride so it's necessary to realign everything every 30 minutes or so. I use any and all gears, and spin away to my heart's content. (Read HRM) With a good cadence, in 40 minutes, I'm a puddle! Good luck.
