bottom bracket for older bike...

I have a hand-me-down Miyata road bike (probably a 110). I have convertied it to a fixed gear and now am changing out the bottom bracket & crank. I found a good deal on Sugino 75s and am looking for a comparable botom bracket but I have read that some older bikes will not fit the cartridge bbs.

I really don’t want to hunt around for older parts…will my bike take the cardridges? What should I look for to figure this out?

Your bike probably has an English threaded BB shell, so you have many options. There is no reason why you cant use a cartridge BB. I believe that the Sugino cranks use a standard ISO taper BB, so any old SHimano cartridge with the right spindle length will be fine.
