Unfortunately, as this is not a bike that we sell we have no specification for the bottom bracket type or size. However, Most electric bikes require at least a 128mm width bottom bracket due to the torque sensor that is mounted onto the crankset. In this instance I would recommend you take the bike to your local Halfords store where a member of staff can measure the bottom bracket and advise you further.

The best thing to do is to remove and check the existing bottom bracket. The size (e.g. 68x113) should be written on the shell of the bracket.

easy to check ge a piece of card cut out enough off the card to allow you to pass it up from underneath the bracket about 10mm clearence will do then mark on the card either end of the spindle whilst holding the card against it with one hand (finger and thumb) then measure the distance between the two marks with a ruler = the required length

Yes, this should be a direct replacement for your orignal bottom bracket, the optimal chainline for your bike is between 50-55mm.

For the Outrider the 118x68 BB would be a better fit, Item Code 271510 or Shimano's equivilent Item Code 680702.

The FS26 uses an offset chainset, therefore a 68x118 (271452) or 122 (271445) would provide you with a better chain line.

Due to the Viking Urban Trail not being a bike a Halfords own brand bike we do not have any technical specification for the Bottom Bracket. However, the 113mm bottom bracket is used regularly on Viking bikes. In this instance I would recommend that you take the bike to your local Halfords store where the crankset can be removed and the bottom bracket axle accurately measured.

This will depend on the chainset that you are currently using, however, the correct size for the standard chainset should be 68 x1 18mm, such as the VP-BC73 68 x 118 Square Taper Bottom Bracket (271452). Should you require any further information please go to your local Halfords store where a member of staff will be happy to help you further.
