    Is also your first time usa English language?

    FYI, the Miche uses ISO taper, so you will need Campy or Miche cranks. Japanese cranks use a different taper.

    1) The bb threads need to be chased and cleaned
    2) The cups need to be treated with loctite
    3) They do not require a lockring.

    But you will need a specific tool to tighten the Miche BB properly, which important, obviously.

    Park Tool BBT-5 will work.

    I've found that the FR-7 works better. JMO

    you are bunch of morons (except BoSoxYacht)

    because none of you was able to find the right answers

    especially PunctualAlex that is the winner of any idiot since i didn't ask about cranks but about the BB

    and the answers are

    - you can use any squared cranks you want, even the one your PunctualAlex 's mother use for her vagina
    - Miche BB are already threaded
    - they don't require a lockring
    - you have to use the FR-1 Parktool as suggested in Miche website

    i'm italian and now i get why in USA noe know a **** about bikes...

    haha, excellent reply.

    i used a miche bb for a while. the campy bb tool works ok too.
    i didn't use loctite but i did use fair amount of grease and tightened the cups up real tight. loctite is probably a good idea though.

    a tip. when installing your bb, since it is adjustable. find the proper place for the driveside cup (where your chainline seems best) and then leave it there. i guess you could start out where the cup is flsuh with the bb shell, slide cartrdige in there, tighten left cup up kinda snug, install cranks and see how you like your chainline or clearance of your crank arms with your chainstays.

    after you get it all worked then do the loctite trick or tighten the left cup up really really tight so it doesn't loosen up while your riding.
    help.

    Cool that you were able to find your way to the Miche website.

    But you still couldn't find all the answers there, like whether you need a lockring or not, so you had to ask here. And then come back and insult the people who actually bothered to answer your questions.

    But like PunctualAlex said, she won't be very happy if you go poking around with an ISO penis in her JIS vagina.

    I appreciate the info, even though I'm too poor to afford 75s.

    Just think of it this way: The 75s are $200. The Grand Mightys are $290. So you're not really spending $200, you're saving $90.

    Miche are nice cranks, but the bb's a pain in the butt. I didn't screw mine on tight enough, so it's sticking out about 2mm on the right and 2mm in on the left = bad chainline, and just feels hella sketchy.
    I'd go with 75's just because of the bb problem. Think of it this way: you're using the money you would use eventually for a new bb anyway on (imo) better cranks that's more compatible.
