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)

it needs to be an ISO interface with the right spindle size (107mm). Any BB with those specs are fine.

Which pretty much limits you to a Miche BB.

They weren't available for a while but I just ordered a dozen of them for the shop from a major US distributor so I don't think that's true.

Probably not helpful, but Sugino still makes a loose-ball ISO BB in 109mm.

I'm not sure where you learned to do math but 109mm is not 107mm.

Im not sure if you read what he said but from what i read it looked like he posted "Probably not helpful" which im assuming he knew he was supplying information for a bb with the wrong size?

I'm going to start giving people the wrong answers in the 'Ask Scrod' thread and begin all my posts with "Probably not helpful but...".

I knew the desired BB size was 107mm, but we're talking a 1mm difference per side. As long as there are 107mm options, my post can simply be ignored.

Why would this matter if the wheel is that heavy? You can build a 32h wheel laced 3X that weighs less.

Yeah, that's what I realized. I like the looks of the low spoke count and radial lacing but that's about as far as it goes.

I played around on prowheelbuilder.com with the 24/28h miche hubs and realized that the 12 spokes you'd save don't make up for how much heavier miche hubs are than 32h novatecs.
