    Carbon bike on Kinetic trainer?

    The question is: are trainers safe for carbon frames? My alum frame flexes when the trainer is secured, no idea if this pressure would be too much for carbon. Thoughts?

    It's fine. Just use an old skewer as it will get chewed up by the trainer.

    I rode my Specialized Tarmac (CF) on my Kurt Kinetic for 3 weeks following knee surgery. No problems with the bike.

    Let's hope winter is only 3-weeks long this year!
