I was forced to fabricate my own adapter from an angle bracket.
If you are handy and have the tools available you will be able to do this work yourself, otherwise I would recommend finding a different coupler.
What really drives me up a wall here is that after I ran into this issue I began researching online for others who may have had this problem. And I could find forum posts as far back as 2005 of people who have had this same issue. Its been 8 years and still the company has made no effort to alter their design.
I will post pictures of what I did in the Customer images section.
Often a concern or issue with the cheaper trailers is if they will properly mount to more "high end" bikes. The garden variety mass market retailer bikes (i.e. the cheaper ones) usually have a horizontal dropout for the rear axle where the more expensive bikes will have a vertical dropout for the axle. The hitches are designed with mass market retailer bikes (horizontal dropouts) in mind.
These hitches will work on either. With vertical dropouts rather than following the directions provided, you must instead position the tab that sticks off the back of the washer so that it will rest against the bottom of the frame instead of within the dropout as they are designed.
My wife an I each have one of these hitches on our Raleigh Route 4.0 hybrids (that have a vertical dropouts) and they work just fine. The hitches are also completely compatible with "quick release" style hubs.
The part is advertised for Instep and Schwinn- our trailer is InStep, but we do not have Schwinn bikes (my husband and I both have TREK bikes), and there was no problem using it.
