    Default Any significant issues with using a nice rear wheel on a trainer?

    Dumb question, I know....did a quick search on this...expected it had been asked a dozen times before, but perhaps not. For me, nice wheel = Reynolds MV32. I've been using mine on a trainer for years without issue (just changing QR for indoor/outdoor) so perhaps the answer is in front of me.

    I do wonder though if the point-load from a trainer drum puts any loading on a rear wheel for which it was not designed. Other than sweat, anything to be concerned over? Seems like a pretty minor stress compared to the lateral loading it probably sees on the road, but what do I know....

    Thx for your thoughts -

    Nope.

    It's he!! on tyres however and for that reason alone I use a separate wheel unless I'm riding rollers which are easy on tyres.

    Yeah, in the winter I throw one of those trainer-specific tires on...thanks for the affirmation that all is well.
