Ben's Mil. Sale! What bb do I need?

So I'm hoping to take advantage of the Milwaukee Bicycle sale but I don't know what size bottom bracket to get. I have a 08 bianchi pista. Looking to get sugino 75s. HALP!

To be more clear, you need a 109mm ISO (*NOT* JIS) bottom bracket. The Sugino 75 BB is one option. Campagnolo also makes Centuar and Veloce level BBs that are cartridge, ISO taper, and cheaper. But the closest side IIRC is about 110 or 110.5 mm.

What this means is the standard Shimano UN-series bottom brackets are not compatible.

The Miche Primato BB is another option. It is ISO spindle but 110mm. 1mm will hardly be the end of the world. It's like $30.

The White Industries 68 x 108 - ISO Taper BB is another viable alternative.

Also, I wish people would stop claiming the JIS vs. ISO taper issue is so cut and dry.

It IS cut and dry. One works and one doesn't. Which part of that is hard to understand?

The part where if you compensate for the difference in chainline the different tapers will produce with the spindle length and stick to catridge bearings, it will work fine either way?
