I've been looking for a 107mm spindle BB for a long time. Too bad you can't get cups/spindle combinations anymore. The 107mm size happens to be the same size for track cranks and they costs a bunch...

Anyone doing the 2015 Triple Crown Stage Race this year?

On the fence about this ride. All up north and looking to see if anyone from SoCal is doing it. Would love to be able to share a room/ride with at least 2 or 3 people to help with the costs of them.
