    Just a couple questions...

    Just began my first fixie build up last week. It's an 80s Miyata frame (1024 I think). Ordered some Mavic CXP22's laced to Formula hubs earlier this week after reading about them on here. Anyways, the bottom bracket needs to be replaced and I was wondering if this bottom bracket: http://www.benscycle.net/index.php?m...roducts_id=656
    would fit and also if it would fit these cranks: http://www.benscycle.net/index.php?m...roducts_id=528
    or these: http://www.benscycle.net/index.php?m...oducts_id=3927

    also if you guys had any suggestions on cranks/bottom brackets. Thanks a mill.

    Search for info on the frame you have to see what type of threading is used on the BB shell. Or, you can remove the current BB & get the info off of it.

    I did a little bit of research and I guess all of those Asian manufactured bikes are the English ISO threading so that should work. Thanks!

    Miyatas are great bikes, I love mine.
    “When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark,
    When work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having,
    Just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road,
    Without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.”
    -Arthur Conan Doyle

    Yeah I can't wait until it's finally finished. It's cleaned up pretty nice thus far.
