Quick Release Wheels--Universal?
Firstly, I apologize if this has come up before.
I recently acquired a wheelset with quick releases on both wheels. They came with a bike I found at a thrift store, and as the wheels (and tires) are in better shape than the rest of the bike I would like to put them on another frame.
Being a newbie with rear quick-release wheels, I am not sure whether is it possible to put a quick release on a frame that originally used a bolted-on rear wheel. These are 700c alloy wheels, which I thought might work on an older road bike frame that previously used 27" wheels.
Thanks in advance, and again, sorry if this information is in another thread. My search didn't find it, but I probably did not spend enough time looking.
