Which BB would fit a Raleigh Teaba using Miche Pistard Air Cranks?

Anyone willing to help me out on picking the right bottom bracket to order.

My frame had a FSA sealed cartridge originally and I'm moving to a Miche Pistard Air Crank 24mm

Measurements of the FSA BB were 68x103mm (square tapered)

I ordered a Miche Evo Max (press fit) 86.5x41mm for sure looks like it won't fit.

The cranks are on their way so can't really use them to lend any good guess on the BB at this time.

I appreciate any help or advice

(My guess was a English Threaded 68mm Miche Evo Max after looking around)

[Frame: Raleigh Teaba] It may compare to the Macaframa

The Pistard Air crankset has a 24 mm spindle.

It requires 24 mm inside diameter bearings which mount outside of the bottom bracket shell, AKA external cup.

If the frame is threaded then any 24 mm external cup BSA "Hollowtech II compatible" bottom bracket will work.

I noticed that the Miche Evo Max bottom bracket has aluminum cups. I'm not sure what other bottom brackets cups are made of but can't imagine that aluminum cups would be durable. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong but my guess is that the Miche Evo Max is therefor designed strictly for track use.

Anyway, the instructions are at https://www.miche.it/pub/media/produ...set_17.001.pdf but they are not in English.

Pretty sure all external bearing BBs I've used have been aluminum cups.

Thanks.

So maybe the English Threaded 68mm Miche Evo Max bottom bracket is durable for road use. If that is the case then he can't go wrong.

Pretty nice gear either way. That's a nice crankset.
