Rivendell should really update their info on this... i'm sure lots of people buy 107 and 110mm BBs and end up gouging their chainstays.
they are Sugino cranks, but I think they are the XD600. The shop got them, charged me $90 and they have alloy rings.

They are a bit tight with the 107, but it works. The bike looks like it would accomodate 2 or 3 different sizes without drama.

However, the BB doesn't suit her, so once again my lovely titanium BB is homeless... Which reminds me, I need to tell the bike shop about it; I called them about adding barrel adjusters and forgot to mention it.
