    After a few too many 'bumps' and having a habit of never sitting on the seat i am in desperate need of a new bottom bracket and cranks.

    I was looking to purchase the parts online
    as my local bike shop doesn’t stock any ISIS or octalink parts which look like they might survive a little longer than the standard square tapered ones!!

    Unfortunately i have no idea about bikes technically and was
    wondering if anyone knew the sizing of the bottom bracket and crank assembly of a Giant XTC SE? If not are you able to give me any guidance as to how I might go about finding out the measurements or parts that may be suitable?

    The bike in question is here:

    Thanks in advance for your help

    You just need to measure the width of the bottom bracket shell on the bike, (that's just the frame, not including any of the cups) for a Giant I expect it to be 68mm, but I would check. Additionally, check the actual axle length, with the cranks removed
