My old Giant XTC mountain bike was stolen last week, so i've got to buy a replacement this week.
I used the Giant XTC for pulling a Burley trailer with two kids and commuting a few miles to work via street and through an easy trail.
Could a road bike pull double duty as a recreational road bike and as a work horse for weekend trailer pulling?
I was concerned that a bike with carbon bits or a carbon frame might not be suitable for use with a Burley or a trail-a-bike. I have a Yeti 575 full suspension bike with the carbon joints in the rear triangle that i've avoided using with the trailer due to concerns about stress.
