    Google the specs for your specific crank.

    What they're trying to you is that you select a bottom bracket to match the crankset you are using.
    In the case of the Origin 8, you need a square taper bottom bracket with a 103mm spindle length (assuming you want 42mm chainline). Info taken from here.

    The only other thing is the bottom bracket shell width and threading, which is probably 68mm English threaded.
