    Is towing a double trailer with a carbon road bike a good idea or not?

    I have a double trailer for my boy and am going to be MTB bikeless for a while.

    Is it a bad idea to tow on my carbon Trek Madone road bike?

    how dose the trailer attach I would be worried about clamping anything to a carbon frame or seat post. I'd snag my wife's bike and let her ride the carbon sled till my mountain bike was back if I was you.
