Miche cranks and BB

HI...

I know many people have been complaining about the miche primato BB and that apparently it gets lose as the time goes by. Some people from here have been using a campy record (or any other) 102 mms lenght. I got a set of miche cranks sometime ago and I realy didnt like the miche BB, because it looks cheesy and apparently because of the lose cups problem I did a good 1st impression when I saw it the 1st time.

Everybody knows that campy is kind'a expensive so I went with a cheapo solution maybe available in Europe and here in the US. Im talking about TOKEN, this asian guys are doing good stuff so i gave a chance to the Token BB. I got it at ebay for about 45 bucks, carbon fiber body, steel axle (they have a titanium one obviously expensier), aluminum cups, water seals, super smooth bearings, etc.

So today I got the BB, squared tap, ISO. The instalation was easy and please this is for everybody... use TEFLON TAPE IN THE CUPS THREAD ALWAAAYYSS (maybe thats the reason because the miche BB gets lose)..

I saw the Token ISIS bb and its super smooth, A friend of mine is using one since 8 months or so and he is quite pleased with the product so far, no problems!....

Thanks and I hope this solve some problems people is getting...
