alien cranks bb

Just looking at the alien website and it states that you get a 42mm chainline with a 103mm bb. The bb that can be purchased with the crankset looks to be 107mm, and the review on fgg states that it is 107mm for a 42mm chainline.
anyone with experience with this that can clarify this for me. thanks

110.5 or 107 should work, the kazane are the same and it's a ***** to get right but a 110.5 gives you good chainline and pedal position. the 107 is what i run with my kazane and the chainline's good after a crap ton of working to get everything on right.

You could certainly use a Phil if you've got the money.

i guess that i am just a little confused about what size to get, since they don't make a 107, and the 2 10.5 are campangolo spec., and i have no idea what that means.
