If you mean the valve stem length, I would use 60mm.
The wheels look like the same depth as my Virtuoso, which require 55-60mm

I too felt streached, so I've replaced my 120mm stem with a 110mm one (O/S 31.8mm / 1 1/8"). Or buy new handlebar with 90mm reach (100mm fitted).

No is the short answer. Any adults bike sold from Halfords has a maximum rider weight limit of 19 stone. Any more and the warranty will be void. I certainly would not suggest a road bike for somebody of your weight, possibly one of the stronger mountain bikes but again the warranty would still be void.

Which chainsets can replace the one supplied?
The front chainset bent after a few months and I could only find the Shimano 2300 Square Taper chainset for a budget price. Will this fit on the bike without any other major parts adjustments?

I had a problem where I thought the bike was too highly geared so after much research changed the chain set to a FC-2350 compact set, which I ordered from halfords. Fitted fine with no need to adjust anything and has helped enormously!

It's a direct replacement, you will need a removal tool though, available very cheaply on Amazon.

not sure but a 58cm Large tdf is only 20" from crank to top of the tube, its a compact frame and not measured in the same way if you are over 6'3" and want a compact frame you will need XL frame, trust me the fun i had at halfords finding this out wasnt fun.

The Carrera TDF incorporates Quick Release (QR) axles both front and rear, this will enable you to remove the wheels and make fitting the bike in the car easier. However, it will depend upon the size of the car as to whether it will fit.

The Carrera TDF's 58cm measurement is the Top Tube length, this measurement is provided by measuring, parallel to the ground, the distance between the centre of the headtube and the seat tube. Should you require any further assistance please go to your local Halfords store where a member of staff will be happy to help you further.

Question
FD A050 query
My TDF road bike is fitted with a Shimano FD A050 front mech. The chain keeps dropping off the large and small chain rings. The Shimano spec for the FD A050 states this mech is recommended for 14 gears. The TDF has 16 gears. Is this mech correct for a TDF? Would adjusting the High and Low limit screws solve the proble?
