Just picked one up used at a fantastic price, it's roughly 2 years old and i'm wanting to attach to my new Tarmac comp. The trailer has the triangular hitch mount and I could order the skewer mount if that's the preferred method. I have heard pros and cons on mounting to a carbon frame while aluminum or steel would be the preferred frame.
The hitch isn't a clamp-style which is what some LBS were telling me to beware of when mounting to carbon and that the skewer mount is "safer" for the frame.
I received about the same negative answers as positive and the ones who told me it's allright to pull with an all carbon frame have been doing do for a few years with no probs.
What's the general consensus on this, i'm pretty safe, have enough common sense to not wrap the trailer tire around a stop sign but I know things can happen.
Also, what part do I need to order to replace the plastic triangle hitch for the skewer?
Any thoughts/criticism appreciated.
