What size bolts does the rear frame take for mounting a bike rack

Since you probably need to go to a hardware store to get them anyway, you could just take the bike in and guarantee a good fit. They're probably metric. Make sure they're long enough. Get washers.

Trying to fit Tioga alloy carrier to mountain bike and it doesnt appear wide enough to pick up bottom points.What or where are the rear dropout points?

The "rear dropout" points are the part that connects the rear axel to the frame of the Bike. You likely have to remove the back wheel during the process of installing it.

Can i use a rear skewer with bolt ends on my cannondale quick 6? will they ruin my frame? i purchased a used forza bike trainer and it did not come with a skewer. i am not sure what kind of skewer to...

Look at this old-school skewer and find one at a local bike shop or ask a friend who owns a couple of bikes. He probably has some unused ones just lying around.

That's the universal design for wheel holders on stationary trainers.

Can you please provide me a list of all major bike types?

I have listed the most famous bike types: BMX Bicycle

Bicycle Moto Cross (BMX) bicycles are designed for rough off road riding and are typically single speed. People also use them for stunt riding, and you may see some fitted with stunt pegs.

Mountain Bike (MTB)

A mountain bike is designed for trail riding and downhill riding. It can also be ridden on the road. They come in many shapes and forms. Some have no suspension, whilst others have front and rear suspension. A mountain bike without rear suspension is usually called a hard tail bike.

Most MTBs use 26 inch wheels which is the standard. This size wheel is fairly strong, especially when coupled with the large off road tyres that are fitted to MTBs.

An MTB is suited for off road riding and will handle rough terrain quite easy. It is very stable on rough terrain, but is a lot slower to ride on the road when compared to a road bike. It is also suitably geared for climbing hills.

Hybrid Bicycle

Another style of bike that has a similar riding position to a mountain bike, but better road speed is a Hybrid bicycle. Hybrids are a cross between a mountain bike and a road bike. They have an upright comfortable position, road tyres, and are usually a lot lighter than a mountain bike.

Hybrid bicycles are typically used for commuting.

Touring Bicycle

A touring bicycle is designed for loaded cycle touring and has the capability to be fitted with mudguards, racks, panniers and extra water cages. They are typically fitted with wider road type tyres that are suitable for gravel riding also.

They usually come with a stronger frame and longer chainstays so that the back of your feet don't hit the rear panniers. They are usually fitted with a relaxed drop bar style handlebar. The geometry of the frame is also different and allows for much more easier steering and handling when loaded.

Expedition Bicycle

As above for touring, but usually fitted with Trekking bars and MTB gear and is designed for extreme off road conditions.

Randonneur or 'All Rounder'

A rare beast in Australia where we like to specialise. 'Randonneur' is a French term, coined to describe a bike that can do a bit of everything - you can ride with the pack or take a doddle with the kids, you can ride light or carry a load, you'd use it to visit Gran on Sunday then pick up some groceries on the way home. They are the 'family station wagon' of cycling. However, like any Jack of All Trades, they do everything well but the specialists do it better. They can carry a load but not like a heavy tourer. They are fast but heavier than a racer and with more comfortable geometry. They have wider wheels and tyres to ride on rough roads but wont handle true off road work.

Typically, they look like any other racing or flat bar road bike ... until you look at the details. Most randonneurs start life as a touring bike or hybrid, and are then modified by the owner over time to reflect how they are used.

Can you put mountain bike rims or wheels on a road bike?

Yes, but not without consequences. The front wheel will probably fit, but the brakes won't reach the rim and it's likely that the tire will get squeezed by the fork.
A modern rear MTB hub is 135 mm wide, while a modern road hub is 130 mm, so there's your first problem. Then you'll also have the same issues with brakes not reaching and tire clearance as you had for the front.

Bikes with disc brakes can sometimes take different wheel sizes w/o any further issues, but keep in mind that pedal clearence will change.

Trying to trasfer my beto bike seat from my husbands bike to my bike. My bike does not have the 2 holes in the frame that is below the saddle to attach the bracket to. I do not have the bikes mentioned...

i used the extra brackets my disc brake mdl came with and fitted it to the bike seat clamp instead of the frame..

Mine came up solid as a rock! no issues.

Can't fit my rear axel

hi jenny,

what is the brand and model of your frame and your rear wheel assembly?usual fitting is better made with the bike mounted upside down, letting gravity make the balancing. but this is possible to most mountain bike, not most road bikes.

looking forward to your reply.
