I believe it will work fine on standard 26" mtb rims. Also, you'll want to check your trainer to be sure that the resistance unit can adjust to a smaller diameter tire/wheel (this tire will have a smaller diameter--it will be further away from the resistance unit--than a 2.1).

I had a previous model year version of the Kryrium Elite for a few years. It was "old reliable" wheelset for me. Not superlight, but not really heavy either. Very stiff feeling compared to other wheelsets I've used. The flat aero spokes seem to catch a sidewind more than conventional spokes. I'm still wishing I hadn't sold them.
I've used Michelin Pro Race and Conti GP4000s. I liked the feel of the Conti's the best, but these are my second favorite for feel and probably favorite overall of the three. I've only had them 400 miles, but they're great so far. No flats yet and seem to be wearing very well. They feel is not quite a supple or grippy as Conti, but I like the feel of these better than the Michelin's.
I had the 4000s for about 10 months. They were the best feeling tire I've used--felt very grippy in turns, but not slow otherwise. They did not wear quickly either, and they are pretty light. Used at the 120psi max recommended on the sidewall. However, I had casing threads start to come off of the tire down by the bead and going around the tire. My brakes were never rubbing on the tire (I'm a former shop mechanic), so it seemed to be just falling apart prematurely. The bike shop juys said it was an issue they'd seen but not structural, but it still had me worried about a blowout, so I switched tires. I wish I felt comfortabel keeping them on there longer.
I thought that the 4000s uses the "black chili" rubber compound and the 4000 does not. That's what the manufacturer's website seems to say: http://www.conti-online.com/generator/www/de/en/continental/bicycle/themes/race/racetyres/grand_prix_4000S/gp4000S_en.html
Used this bar in the 25.4 version for a few years. Solid performer. Couldn't tell that it was any different than a 150g aluminum bar (in terms of vibration damping or stiffness). You pay extra for the weight savings.
This is the only post I use. I had a different brand bend on me once, so I just went back to this one. This is simply a mount and forget about it product. No slipping down into the seatpost, ever. Lightweight--you can get lighter, but not more durable for this weight.
If you can get your cross bars far enough apart on your car to use these, I think they are a great fork mount for the price. I've used them for years, with no problems. Long lasting. I like their simplicity.
I've been using an older model of this shoe for years--still going strong. I'm starting to wear out the sole around the clear, so I'll probably need to get some new ones. I also have a narrow foot--they seem like they would fit best on average to narrow feet. No issues with the buckles. Love them!
This has become my new favorite tire/tread design for the front on an XC race bike. The tire is very light in the non-UST version (I have the 26x2.25 non-UST version--they only seem to sell the UST version here). It is reliable in most conditions--giving my excellent grip while leaning into corners, steering corners, braking straight, or braking while turning. It still feels pretty fast and grippy on hard pack, but I have used other tires that feel faster on hardpack. It has taller knobs than most tires of similar light weight. I haven't had any issues with the sidewall durability, even though they are pretty thin.
