Question Front wheel bearing size

Am I correct in saying that the front wheel bearings are 6302's ie: 15mm X 42mm X 13mm ?

Cheers Gaz, there must be about 1mm of play when the wheel is twisted back and forward, funny though they don't sound that rough when the wheel is spun though!

Prob didn't notice, only rode about 10mls when I bought it and have since had it stripped to the frame and built up again, only put the wheel back in so it could be moved!
