I asked this on the components forum, but figured I'd ask here as well. I'd like to buy a trainer for home use and for warming up at the velodrome. Does anyone have expereince with conflicts between trainers and 120mm rear spacing? I am particularly interested in the Tacx Swing.

I used my steamroller on the trainer last winter. the only issue I had was the clamps on the trainer, being desinged for use with a quick release skewer, were a bit larger that the axle nuts causing a small amount of play on either side. I was using a cycleops, no experience with the tacx.
