BB Question

so here is a question, if i am going to run sugino 75's on my bianchi pista with a shimano UN53 BB, should i go 107 of 110? i am going to be running this with a miche primato track hub and most likely an EAI cog. and yes i searched, but did not find an answer to this specific qustion.

thanks in advance.

If you are running a Miche hub, how come you aren't running the Miche Cog Carrier System?

the 107 and the 110 actually have the same drive-side spindle length. the 110 just has a longer non-drive side. either are fine, but i prefer the 107.

the miche cog carrier system has a big reputation for being crap as well.

...and for not having any hub preference. Apparently, they work equally crappily on any hub.
