    carbon frame in a trainer.

    is this safe? if so, what are some tips to make sure you dont make your frame blow up? this is the first winter that i have a carbon bike and even though i will be riding outside i want to use it on my trainer as well. thanks for any advice.

    You'll be fine, CF bikes aren't as fragile as some people make them out to be. In fact, with no danger of crashing, your bike should be safer on the trainer than outside.

    I used a CF on a trainer last winter with no problem.

    the trainer should attach to a skewer and not touch your frame... it wont be harmed.
