Trailer Hitch Question?
Howdy, I have a X-mart trailer, I gutted and added a top box to make a utility trailer, my old bike was a Roadmaster Mnt. Sport SX-sudo-MTB and it had "non-QR" wheel's so it was a snap to add the "smallish" "hitch" to the bicycle. My new bike is a Jamis Trail-X 3.0, with QR axles and "disc brakes", this hitch is supposed to work with QR wheels but it hangs down from chain stayhanger but I "think" it will interfere with the "rear disc brake" any ideas, thoughts, suggestions??
I was thinking of drilling a set of 4 smallish holes, using "U-Bolts" and attaching the hitch on the chainstay, "ahead" of the disc brake, would that cause too much stress on the chainstay?? Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!
Take care, RIDE SAFE, have FUN!
