New Track Bike - Miche BB Question

Postby variable » Fri Aug 23, 2013 4:40 pm

This is my first build and I went with a lot of Miche components. In order to install the Miche Primato BB are there any tools I need besides some loktite and grease?

No? I've heard conflicting stories. One being that you'll never remove the bb should I use loctite, the other that the miche bb is loose. I guess I'll just install it without lotite and see if it's loose and deal with it then.

FWIW I've used no loctite on my Miche BB and have had no dramas.

I'd use thread locker if the BB is Italian threaded, if it's BSA thread no need.

Does anyone know if the Miche Primato BB can be adjusted so as to have the chainring further off the frame?
