Using something like this:  http://www.amazon.com/Bell-Motivator-Indoor-Bicycle-Trainer/dp/B000AAYBWS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=sporting-goods&qid=1252604570&sr=8-1

Anyone (Jenny?) familiar with using these kinds of things and can offer a personal review?

I used one of these setups a few years ago. It wasn't too terribly difficult to set up (if I recall correctly), and if you've already got a bike, it saves you from needing to invest in a stationary bike. It's about as comfortable as your bike is; I invested in a squooshier seat, as it was pre-grew-an-ass timeframe.

Overall, I have a favourable view of these.

I approve of trainers. (Sorry I never answered your email.) They work quite well and you can increase the resistance.

It is recommended to put a slick tire on your back wheel if you have nubby tires, because it can get pretty loud.

Also, if you don't want to buy blocks, just use some books or something under the front wheel. But you'll want something unless you want to be riding "downhill" the whole time.
