    Premature nondrive side cone wear with trailer quick release attachment???

    I just had the cone (non drive side) of my rear wheel get pitted with under 1000 miles. It is the same sides as where the trailer quick release attachment couples with the bicycle. I wondered if anybody else had seen increased wear due to that type of quick release attachment.
    Thanks

    No, not me... I have a hard time seeing how pulling a trailer would increase the likelihood of pitting.

    With no information about the quality of the bike, a conclusion is impossible.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    Ask the folks in the Bike Mechanics forum if they know of the problem and the causes and a cure.

    I thought this group might have more experience with trailers than over in mech. The trailer is pulled by a surley crosscheck with tiagra 36 spoke hubs on velocity rims. I was using a the quick release skewer with my d'lite trailer. Most skewers are strictly pulling in. The trailer adds a load to the end but I guess it really is not part of the axle so would not add a torsional or bending so that one side of the cone is closer while the other is farther.

    It was just a thought.
    Thanks
