Which a bottom brackets would fit miche pista advanced cranks with a vigorelli 09?

The frame is a 2009 vigorelli.

Crankset Miche Primato Pista advanced .

Is there a philwood which would fit?

Can't go wrong with this. Phil Wood would work, they have a 108 mm that would work.

If you dont know how to figure this out on your own, you shouldnt be installing a bb or even cranks.

Why would it matter if a phil wood would fit? you dont need a 100 dollar bottom bracket and its not cool because it says phil on it...

Also if you joined this forum solely for finding your answer, you belong no where near a vigorelli or even a miche advanced.

Pretty much and cinelli dealer will have the bb width and threads listed. Same goes for the bb spindle length for anyone who sells those cranks.

to the OP, any square taper bb with a spindle length of 108mm "should"work with the miche cranks for instance you might try the miche bb made for that crankset.

You need the special tool to install it.

I didn't join the forum, because I couldn't figure it out myself. Wanted only to get other people opinions, to be sure that the parts will fit.

The Miche bottom bracket is not known for it's quality. The vigorelli isn't my first bike either.

I would never buy a philwood part, just because it's "cool". The only reason for buying a philwood part is it's quality.

I ran a Miche BB for two years on the track and it ran flawlessly. A big part of the Miche BB's alleged problem could be blamed on improper installation.
Phil BB's are way over priced for what you get.

i had the miche bb with the primato cranks a few years ago and it did not last long, the bearings failed after a half year. campy bb have the same square taper, had a athena and it hold up a way longer.
a friends phil bb failed after one winter, because the bearings had no seals towards the inside but at least they are easy to replace...

+1

Miche 107mm with English thread on my Cinelli is working just fine. I doubt the op will be swayed though.
