Ditto, the above. Gotta remember to shift positions on the trainer. Even if I'm doing my recovery ride/easy spin on the indoor trainer, I'll stand to pedal awhile every so often, and scoot around on the saddle a bit.

I also discovered that while I like my old Biopace chainrings on the outdoor bike, I don't care for 'em on the Cycleops trainer. It exaggerates the pulsing, lunging sensation. On the road the slightly elongated lobes, especially on the smaller chainring, give just a tiny bit of leverage on the downstroke. But on the Cycleops trainer it feels herky-jerky and made my knee ache a little. I'll set aside the Biopace rings until I finish rebuilding the bike they were on last year. That bike needs headset servicing and lots of TLC.

Never had any problems with regular round chainrings on the Cycleops trainer. No idea about rollers, haven't used 'em.
