So I currently have a Miche Advanced crankset and Miche BB on my Pista. I'm getting a good deal on a Campy Pista Crank/BB and want to upgrade. You only live once right? Anyway, I'm trying to figure out if the chainline will be straight with the Campy set up since the Miche BB was 107mm and the Campy is 111mm. If not is there anyway for me to make this setup work?
I've done some searching but I can't seem to wrap my head around this. Thanks.
I had a campy record BB and campy record crankset on my pista concept with standard pista wheelset and with an alex wheelset. Straight. Pista and BPC have the same geometry so you should be good. I would think your Miche's were 2mm off but 2mm over 383mm is fine.
I was under the impression that a 42ish mm (shown is a 42.5mm) chainline was standard for any 120mm track hub that gives a 24mm cog spacing. That is what the Record C Pista crankset should give you. That is what the pista wheelset has. What rear wheel/hub are you running?
Remember that bb spindle widths do not dictate the chainline, the chainring position of the crank coupled with the bb spindle do. Youre Miche 107 bb spindle with your Miche crankset should give the same chainline as the Campy record bb spindle and Campy record crankset... or something very similar. Its when you start using different bb's and cranks that you get messed up. Most track/single speed chainlines are 42mm but can range from 40.5mm-42.5mm depending on cog and chainring, spacing and shims.
