Agree with cooldad about the size and they do fit on the vengence as I did have a pair on mine. I have used them for the last 2 years, on different bikes, with no problems. A great tyre that seem to resist punctures well. :)

Again, thanks for the reply's :)
Seems more to this than I thought.
All I know about the chain set is that its a Shimano and its a square taper fitment.

Not sure I follow what you mean?
The Beginner was correct about the size and I have since spoken to Halfords and the choice seems to be limited to a Shimano UN54.

BB size - Carrera vengeance.

Does anyone know the size of the bottom bracket I need for a Carrera Vengeance?
The one in mine has got play in it and I'm told is a sealed unit so will need replacing.
Also what is the best one to buy?
Thanks.

Seems the Vengeance only goes up to 20". :(
The Vulcan is a good bike for the price, I've rode one and found it to be better than you would expect, certianly up to it for road and smooth trails. I have not seen a Boulder but they do get good feed back on here.

Good buy- GT Aggressor XC3?

These are available in Halfords for £299.
Are they any good?
Looking for a starter bike and for the price they look like what I need.
It would be for cycle tracks and light trails.

Yes it is one good looking bike and looks like a fun ride.
