Bike Trailer on a Pilot

Does anyone here connect a childs bike trailer to a road bike? I have a Trek Pilot 1.0 and only ever had mountain bikes. Thanks Christian

Yes, you should have no problems on a road bike assuming there are no problems with the hitch attaching to the bike.

The stopping distance will be increased according to the weight of the rider and trailer. I have only attached the trailer to a road bike or trail-a-bike. My mountain bike will not work well because of the chain stay tubing shape. Have fun!
