Bike w/ front shocks on trainer

With winter here, I find myself having to look at riding the indoor trainer for a workout once in a while. However, the bike I used to use on my trainer was turned into my full time commutter and at the moment, it has the studded tires, lights, etc...completly decked out. It was an old sucker, but fullly rigid steel frame.

I do have my mountain bike which I don't use in the winter months (obvious reasons). So I considered putting this on the trainer, but I have a few questions.

1) The bike has a front shock on it....will this be an issue on the trainer (as in excessive wear on the schock)?

2) I still want to use the bike when the weather gets nice, for outdoor trail riding, etc. Is there anything I need to be concerned about when it comes to taking the bike off the trainer? I don't want to damage my bike or, as #1 indicated, give it excessive wear and tear.


Thanks muchly
