Trainer riding

A light bike doesn't replace good fitness.

I just upraded my CAAD10 to 11sp DA9000 which means I cannot use my trainer wheel without having to upgrade the freehub body and cassette, which i might not want to spend the money on.

Should I be worried about riding my Mavic Ksyrium Elites and my CAAD10 on a trainer or on rollers this winter?
I just want my setup to last as long as possible.

The wheel should hold up just fine. Just be sure to use a dedicated trainer tire and all should be well.

Agreed what Chello said. I tried going the route of "oh i'll buy a cheap sturdy tire for winter on the trainer" and it just turned my wall into a black jackson pollock painting of sprayed and splattered rubber bits. I use a vittoria trainer tire I think I got for $30 on amazon.

If you have a trainer that clamps the rear wheel, don't forget a really cheap, solid steel skewer, too...
