    My Miche Primato Advanced crankset has just arrived, with JIS written on the crank arm. Is this possible? I thought all Miche cranksets were ISO?

    Sweet.

    I've got an order waiting. Just wondering how long it took for them to arrive once you'd paid the deposit, he quoted me 8-10 weeks.

    Happy rolling!

    Wow, thanks so much for that, great to see pics, hope I can get the same result.

    I just got a reply from Jamie at Dolan who said they've used 110mm BBs with the Miche Primato Advanced and a 42mm chainline and had no problems.

    If I can find a dirt cheap 107mm BB I might see what result it gives and go from there.

    Once again, thank you for all your input.

    I haven't got the BB yet as I'm not sure on the length, do you know which BBs don't have the chainline issue on your rental bikes?

    And yes, I need ISO and the Pre Cursa is English threaded.

    Hi

    I'm working on my first build and have a Dolan Pre Cursa frame and Miche Primato Advanced Chainset with a Mack track hub (chainline 42mm). I know a post has just gone up with a transmissions database but it seems there's a specific issue with chainstay rub on the Pre Cursa when using the recommended 107mm BB. Anyone had this issue and does anyone know if using a 110mm BB would be possible?

    Thanks.

    Going to have to give this a go, covering the decals up with electrical tape is a good idea to see if the look is worth all the effort.

    New site looks great. Took me aaages to figure out why I couldn't buy something before. Bet they got a ton of emails asking about that!

    nice man, I just got the frameset and don't need the Alpina seat post. Hit me up if you want to take it off my hands for a small fee.
