    Sugino 75 and Miche bb

    For those of you running a miche primato track bottom bracket with sugino 75 cranks, what spindle length did you go with? I know that the 75 bb is 109mm. The miche bb comes in 107mm and 110mm, so neither are perfect.. but is one more recommended over another?

    Also, for those of you with the miche bb, I've read about the cups coming loose and constantly needing tightening.. have you experienced this personally?


    Thanks.

    I use miche cranks but to answer your other question, yes mine came loose after about 20 miles of riding.

    I've run a Miche BB with no issues. I use grease on 75% of the threads and use Blue Locktite on the the remaining 25%. Comes out when I want to clean or treat the frame with Framesaver but stays put otherwise. The Miche BB is not too different in design than a Phil BB. The Phil BB comes with a blue threading solution and Phil recommends not using grease.

    (Not saying the Miche is the same quality as Phil just similar in design.)

    As far as spindle length I'd go with 110mm spindle with 75s.

    109 is the sugino recommendation for 75s, but miche's cups are both adjustable. mine ultimately did loosen up, but it took several months. a little blue loctite would have fixed that.

    Thanks for all the replies thus far. I'm almost set on going with the miche bb cuz the price is hard to beat.. but has anyone had success with the lower end campy bb's (centaur and veloce) with the 75 crankset?


    Thanks again.

    The Campagnolo Veloce is a nice BB. I used one for close to 2 years without any issues. Can't say it's any better than a Miche BB, since I never had issues with either.
