Watch your skewer!

We had a real problem with the chariot hitch on this mountain bike. The bike has forward-facing dropouts, and the wheel would frequently pop out when pedalling hard. After some research we realised that this is because of the type of quick-release skewer that Chariot supplies - basically, there are two sorts, and they supply the much weaker of the two. See Sheldon Brown's Skewers Page for more information. The skewer in the picture here is the correct one to use.
