Is kk road machine w/ turntable ring a good match?

Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Is kk road machine w/ turntable ring a good match?

Hi everyone,

I just bought a Kurt Kinetic Road Machine with their turntable riser ring and I was wondering if it was a good idea. I know the turntable was design to go with their Rock 'n Roll trainer which can move side-to-side. The thing is if I happen to move a bit the front wheel(not that I want to but it happens easily since the ring moves) there's seem to be a squizing action going on the skewer and trainer, almost like it was forcing a bit. The back of the bike is following the front wheel but I'm not sure it should or if it would do it as well with another riser. It's not huge but still it's there. It is my first trainer so I might be a bit paranoiac. Would that happen with the regular stable riser?

Also while training and looking at the bottom bracket there's a small rocking motion(my body stand still doing that, I'm not bouncing on the bike, then I would be the rocking motion). Is it normal on a trainer or this is really bad for my bike. Again it is my first trainer, I want to make sure before it's too late.

Hopefully this makes sense. English is my second language.

Thank you for any help or comments.
