2002 Vulcan Carrera - sizes please
#1
Just about to replace the bottom bracket on a standard 2002 Vulcan Carrera - all components seem to be Shimano. Does anyone know what size bottom bracket I need, and what fitting removal tool / crank pull I will need...


Thanks

i changed my bottom bracket a few weeks ago,the best way i found to get the size was to take it out and measure it,i also upgraded from a semi sealed to a cartridge bb.i actually used a hammer to remove my cranks rather than a puller but i wouldnt recommend that as my cranks and chainrings were being replaced as well. i used the tool in this link to actually remove the bottom bracket along with a 2 foot breaker bar and a blow torch (some idiot in the factory had glued it in place)
