Hm, I wasn't able to make the chariot hitch work, and neither was the bike shop which ultimately just modded the conversion hitch. It works great. I've used it so long, I had to think what this thread was about, and what you guys were referring to...lol! The skewer with extension is not capable of hauling a lot of weight, which is the main reason I didn't want to use a hub/skewer based hitching method. Using spacers to be able to use other racks, is that what is being mentioned above? I've still never had a need to use something other than the rack it came with. It's held up well to a lot of weight, with only very minor deformation.

As for moving the dropout, I had never thought of it. I'm not sure that I wouldn't have to readjust chain length, re-dial-in gears, etc. I guess I was so lazy about it, I just made it harder, ha.
