Surprised my hybrid disc bike has same width rear end as road bike.

When I say width I am referring to the distance between mounting points.
I was measuring the width of my hybrid rear end in readyness for getting a rack. I was surprised that it is about the same as my Triban road bike. In fact the rear end of the Triban is a bit wider by 18mm. I see racks described as being for disc braked bikes, but I will be able to fit the same rack as I have on the Triban.

Note: Although the tyres in the photos seem the same width, the red hybrid has 35C and the Triban has 25

You'll have to try. So long as it clears the frame as the drop outs are different.
