Serving one's sentence on a trainer

Serving one's sentence on a trainer

One of the worst things about cycling indoors using a trainer is not being able to stand on the pedals. I tried it once or twice a couple years ago, and the bike went crashing to the floor. The trainer just isn't stable enough.

Has anyone got a "standing on the pedals with a trainer" hack to share?

90 minutes on the trainer?  You are so tough! I haven't been on mine in years!

I use a Kurt Kinetic. The front legs are splayed and it is absolutely stable when standing.
Would it be possible to add some kind of stabilizer? I envision a long pipe or 2x4 board that is transverse rear tire and attaches either to the rear or front trainer legs.

Thanks, Don. I guess that's what I'll have to do.
