Rollers and Touring Bikes

I have a 26 inch wheeled LHT... I haven't been riding in a month and a half due to the weather. I'm thinking about getting some rollers. Is the wheel base too long to really work on rollers?

According to the Surly site, the longest 26"wheeled LHT wheelbase is 42.7" and according to nashbar their Parabolic rollers fit 37-43" wheelbases.i'd assume if both these are correct, you'll be fine.
