hooking up a bike trailer to my specialized help
like the title says im looking to hook up this bike trailer to my bike to haul m y son around when we ride( if it was on my wifes she would crash im sure LOL) so i need it on mine but on my specialized rockhopper how the fram hookes to the disc breaks it will not connect has anyone ever done this on one of these bikes? are there any tricks to getting this to fit? or no it will not work and if you guys need pics of what im talking about let me know ill post pics
here is the coupler
Fender washer, bolt, wing nut. Run it through the junction behind the disc torsion gusset. Or make a clamp that will clamp on the stay itself.
Does your trailer have a quick release mount option like the Chariots do?
yea thats the first pic i was showing up there i think, thats the pieces that stays on the bike and u hook the chariot (thats what mine is not a trailer) up to that and u dont have to bolt and un bolt it every time. the hole thats smaller in the pic is the one that the axle goes tho

Grab an axle spacer that's the thickness of the disc tab and mount the trailer connection outside against the disc tab face.
