Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

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.
