I've heard that trainers are bad for frames. How much truth is there to this theory and how much use do ya'll put on trainers?
thanks

Someone, somewhere, has broken a frame while riding their trainer. I wouldn't doubt it. At the same time, I doubt it is really something to be concerned about.

I do standing intervals on a trainer. I can see the back wheel moving side to side in the resistance unit. The flex is in the trainer, not the bike.

I don't worry about it.
