Hitching a trailer to my mundo, limited tools?

Hello- so I just got a used In-step trailer that I want to hitch to my Mundo. I didn't really realize this was going to be an ordeal until I mentioned it to the awesome peeps at Yuba, but unless I can get it hitched up I can't ride with my son for another month!!. (I have a bike seat on back order)

I have limited tools and budget...any ideas?

No, you have not provided much information ,
other than dropping a couple product brand names..
which narrows it to people with the same stuff in front of them.

try your LBS, they at least have some tools tools.

a bigger shop in Seattle would have more.


It's raining and snowing now, I'd just let the month pass.

I guess I don't understand the issue, could you be a little clearer? what is preventing you from simply putting the hitch on your mundo?

NEED PICS! (Rear of the bike, the hitch, etc.)

The issues are that the Mundo has a 14mm axle, and horizontal racks that sit about 35mm below that. She may be able to leave the H racks off until she gets the kiddie seat. That would only leave the oversized axle to deal with.

I realize that I didn't give enough info, and I cant get pics till the weekend, but I will. I have multiple issues to work around as I have the panniers and the rack, plus running boards. This isn't pic of my bike, but the same model

The Burley flex connector fits on most round and square bar trailer tongues. The Burley forged hitch, which is made to go with the flex connector, fits over a regular skewer and a BMX sized axle (ie, 14mm). I've used mine on my Kona (regular skewer) and my Raleigh 20 with the Sturmey Archer 8 spd hub with the 14mm axle.
