The Steel Hitch provides the critical connection from your Burley Trailer to your bicycle. The hitch installs easily on the rear skewer of your bike and then stays attached so the Burley can be connected at any time. If you'd like to swap the Burley from bike to bike pick up a couple spare hitches and install them on the extra bikes so the hitch doesn't need to be un-installed when swapping bikes. Burley's Steel Hitch is designed to work with disc brake and full suspension bicycles. Features:
Mono-stays require a longer safety strap which can be purchased separately
We had the universal hitch that took a few minutes to secure before this. I would highly recommend this for ease of use. Without it, connect and disconnect takes a few minutes rather than 30 seconds. It seems more secure too. It was a breeze to install.
