Burley trailer and disc brakes (Alternate Hitch)?
I finally replaced my commute bike that was stolen last Fall. I got the Trek Portland
. My old bike was disc on the front, and v-brake on the back. My mountain bike is full disc, and riding year round in Seattle, I opted for the full disc on the Portland.
With the good weather (finally), I broke out the Burley trailer for my kids. It just had not occurred to me that I would not be able to pull the trailer as the classic hitch won't work with the disc brakes.
I found that Burley offers and "Alternate Hitch
" that replaces the quick release on the rear wheel.
-First off, has anyone used a hitch like this before?
-Second, I can't find any info on whether or not I can use this on my old Burley D'lite. The newer Burley's have a square arm, and my old one has a round tube. most of the photos I see of the alternate hitch look like it is made for the square tube.
It may be moot as it seems a very scarce item (at least I am having problems finding one).
