I just bought a 2008 Felt TK2 framset and was considering a Miche Primato crankset and would like some recommendation on
a bottom bracket,or any recommendation on crankset-bottembracket combos.
thanks in advance

For the primato crankset you need an ISO square taper BB. The Miche one is the cheapest, with campy and phil wood also being more premium options. I have the primato advanced on my bike and I like it, decently stiff and the ring that came with it seems pretty round too.

What bottom bracket are you using? I've read that the Miche BB should be avoided.

I'm using the miche and haven't had any problems yet. Why should they be avoided?

I have several teammates who got Miche Primato stuff when it was cheap on QBP and they all love it. The bottom bracket is probably the best-spinning cartridge BB I've ever seen. I've never heard of any problems with it, and it's certainly cheap enough (like $20 on PBK) that it's worth taking a chance on.
