I am trying to fit this mudguard to my mountain bike but the instructions are not clear. It shows the alignment of the screw going through the mudguard (from the bottom) into the expander, then going into the fork - but there is no pre-set screw hole and you can hardle make that hole with an allen key?

The product type and model isn't coming through but if it has an expander it's probably intended to be inserted up the bottom of the steerer tube.

What size are the unused threaded holes where the frame hold the rear tire

It is metric threading, most likely M5, possibly M4 (5/4 mm diameter of bolt). You can find bolts to fit in most all hardware or big box stores. The part "where the frame hold the rear tire" is called the rear dropout. Here's a pic showing various bike part names:The Parts Of Bicycle Nomenclature Bike Component Names What Things Are...

When i shift to 2nd gear and let off it shifts back on its own

Put the rear derailleur into second gear and stop the bike before it shifts back down. Look carefully at the derailleur and you will see two small screws next to each other. These are stop screws. The stop screw for high gear may be out of adjustment, or the front derailleur is out of alignment putting sideways torsion on the chain forcing the chain to drop back into first gear.

They stole my bikes pedals and I want to know what size they are to buy them?

Being a mtn bike it probably had flat pedals or lock-in SPD. Either way, pedals dont come in sizes, the shoes do. A pair of pedals will fit ANY bike, just select the type you want. Just be careful when screwing on, there is a LEFT PEDAL and a RIGHT PEDAL. They screw on in oppposite directions.!

Hi. New ( 1 mnth road driven ) norco mountaineer 7005. Back disc brake rubbing a bit. Need clear instructions to fix. Please guide me norco gods. Tim

Nothing on a bike is unique to the manufacturer of the bike. All components are generic and made by a handful of makers. Go to the website of the brake manufacturer and look around. Or web search "how to...." just about anything you want to know.

Try here for procedures and tools.

How do I fit saddlebag supports?

Would help to know mak and model.

Presuming that the supports you have are matched to the bike you have, you should find a couple of nuts on the back mudguard (Probably holding some chrome work in place if it is a cruiser). That are the same spacing as the holes in your saddle bag supports. The nuts, when removed should be long enough to go through the saddle bag supports and back into the mudguard frame. You MAY need to buy extended nuts to get the reach to go through the support, chrome work and frame. Order of things to go through: Nut through saddle bag support first, then original chrome then into screm socket in the mudguard. If it's NOT a cruiser and the above doesn't work, please come back and tell me the model of the bike.

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.

How do I pump a presta valve with the Blackburn Mountain Air Bike Pump 4 Bicycle

They should be designed to fit both styles of valve, but you need to reverse the seal.
you should be able to unscrew the end, remove the sealing rubber and a plastic fitting that pushes on the valve, replace them the opposite way around ,and they will fit the presta.

Hi I have a BOSS Stealth bike and have unfortunatly lost the instructions, i was wondering if you could help as i have no idea how to fit the mud guards and reflector. Please Help i cannot find anything at...

I don't remember how the rear mudguard works but if you take your front wheel off and look at the tube where the forks join you will see that it is hollow. Put the mounting screw through the inside of the front mudguard into the plastic cylinder that came with it. There should be a plastic wedge that the screw will screw into. The wedge expands the cylinder as you tighten the screw. Before tightening the screw insert the cylinder with the screw through the mud guard into the hollow tube that you looked at and then tighten the screw. Replace the wheel and the front mudguard is mounted. I just remembered that the rear mudguard has a clamp mounted on the end of it. The seat post fits through the clamp. In other words the mudguard is mounted on the seatpost. Hope this helps.
