DCR had a first look about a week ago. Personally, I'm not convinced that rocking "side to side" is the appropriate motion for a trainer.

"...the street finds its own uses for things"
I've looked at the Rock 'N Roll in the past but in the name of not spending money on another trainer I simply stop pedaling and stand when I want to take a bread from the saddle.
I really notice it when I use a different trainer that locks the bike solid, which is one of many reasons that I haven't upgraded to a smart trainer yet, for fear of losing that lateral "flexibility".
Having said that, the movement here looks a bit OTT for me!
I'm seriously considering buying this trainer. Locked in trainers make my 'boys' numb after 60mins or so. I live in a nordic country, dark and very cold for the next 5 months. Long rides are not possible so by early summer my cycling is rubbish, I cannot mentally sustain months of short intervals so hoping this will make steady indoor 2-3 hour rides possible. There are some new rollers from Elite and TruTrainer that offer hope too, but you cannot switch off on those even if they might be more fun.
I have used reg roller with a fork mount and I can confirm this!

Before the KK R1 was announced I felt that an Omnium with wireless resistance was all that was needed, controlled by a power meter so cheaper hardware, and you've pretty much got it all. However no one has made such a device.
For those who already have a $$ trainer and would like the 'rocking' feature, I think there are some 'rocker' plate/platforms on the market, no? Not sure of $$ though.
I wonder how hard it would be to make your own rocker plate... Any kind of platform, like a large cutting board or plywood, and glue some pool noodle pieces on the underside, a little ways out from the center to give it some squishiness/rocking?
