SOURCE: Can i put the chain from my raleigh mojave onto my raleigh venture 4.0

I would absolutely advise against doing this, for multiple reasons:
1. If one bike has many more miles on it than the other the difference in wear could cause skipping problems when using the other bike's chain. The Mojave is an older model than the Venture, so the chain is likely to be worn ("stretched").
2. You need a specialized tool to take the chains apart, and the correct type of connecting link to reassemble the chain (cannot just put most modern chains back together using the same link/pin). The tool is something you may not need again for a very long time.
3. The chain does need to be at least as long as the old one, but not too much longer. The chain for the Mojave may be too short, as its large rear cog is smaller on some models than the one on the Venture, which means the chain could be too short. Shifting to the wrong gear with too short a chain can cause major, expensive damage.
4. New chains are not that expensive, and neither is installation. If you have a bike co-op nearby they can advise you on what chain to get and help you install it. See the link below for more info on chains. As the Venture is a fairly new model the odds are good that the cogs on the rear will not be very worn, so a new chain should mesh OK.
5. If you need a new chain on a bike as recent as the Venture it probably is due to the old chain breaking or being damaged, either of which is very unusual. It's important to correct the original problem before replacing the chain.
P.S. There is no need to measure the "sprocket gears" when determining what type of chain is compatible. One merely needs to count the number of cogs in the rear.

What is the year of manufacture?

Serial numbers are most often useless in dating or getting info on bikes. Some bikes have a date code on the head tube (where the fork goes through). Best solution is to go to BikePedia, then put your make/model in to the search. Scroll through until you find one that matches the color scheme, decals and equipment of your bike.

Removing rear wheels

you dont need to remove tires from bike, turn bike on one side so back tire is flat to ground, this give you the other tire in air for easier access. Use a tire removal kit to take off tire there relatively cheap, try walmart, they usually have the tires and the removal kits too...

I have some space between the rear axle and the bearing hub on my Raleigh M40. Can you tell me if you have both an axle and the the bearings hubs for each side?

We don't supply parts. Advice. Take the wheel to a bicycle shop for an assessment as the parts are not universal among the different hub makers.

How do I get a Raleigh Rapide (circa early 1980's) to hook up to this trainer? The rear wheel axle does not have a quick disconnect and I can't remove the axle to replace with the supplied skewer

A QR rear axle CAN be retro-fitted to your wheel by a bike shop and it would make wheel removal for repair much easier. If you DO go this route make sure to get an old-school rounded QR where the handle is not overlapping the end of the axle.

Like this:

Just the same, won't the trainer grip the (assumed) nuts holding your wheel? It might mar the insides but I would think it would hold.

I just looked at the hardware on my old-school trainer and I think it would accomodate a 9/16" or 5/8" nut. I don't own any standard wheels to check it with.

Just got Raleigh Detour 4.5 Women's with Shimano EF-50- EZ shifter and no clue how to use all speeds and levers??? Help...any manuals???

Where did you buy the bike? Any dealer who sells a bike is more than happy to instruct you on the use and maintenance of it. I will give you a brief, lesson-left hand controls the front brake and gears, right hand controls the rear (R=rear, easy way to remember). Front derailleur is the ranges 1 (closest to the bike are always easiest) and the farther away from the frame get harder but make the bike go faster. The rear derailleur has more than likely 7 cogs again same rule as above. So always pedal forward and do not go small gear in front to small gear in rear, & large gear in front to large gear in rear because your chain will stretch from too much stress and it doesn't do you any good.
Do not pedal backwards because unless your chain is directly on the correct gear you will chip teeth on your gears.
But, do go for lessons on your bike, to learn maintenance tips and how remove your wheels, etc.
Remember bikes are not toys, they are machines and need to maintained to get the full enjoyment out of them.

Rear axle broken on Raleigh road bike, can i/ how do i replace it

Is it the axle in the hub or a skewer (quick release) that is broken? If it is the skewer, those can be replaced. If it is the hub (with a through-axle), then you would do best to buy a new wheel.
