My bike is Giant Defy 5 and trainer is Elite Rampa. I notice that after putting my bike on the trainer and riding for a while, the rear wheel tilts to one side, usually resulting in the wheel rubs the brake and even frame. I do not have this problem outside. Is there something wrong with my trainer setup? Thanks a lot for your help!

    Do you have to replace your standard quick-release and use a trainer specific quick-release? A tilting wheel indicates that the QR isn't tight enough. Tighten the right nut by 1/8 to 1/4 of a turn. – Carel May 25 '17 at 15:39

    Yes. I already use the skewer comes with the trainer. I will try to tighten it a little more. The right nut is the driver side? Thanks. – tonyhhkung May 25 '17 at 15:51

    Yes, opposite the cam/lever of the QR. You open the lever tighten the nut slightly and close the lever again. Basically the same you'd do if you put in a wheel. – Carel May 25 '17 at 15:54

I can't think of any reason that would be migrating in the frame unless it wasn't secured enough to begin with. You should check the tightness of your quick release.
