the spanish bb is Fly's trademark bb. the old style big one is the american bb.the euro is the one with threaded cups and tiny little bearings(doesnt seem to hold up to abuse real well). and the more common one now is the mid size bb. it needs the bottom bracket in your frame to be pre machined so the bearings fit straight into it. bearings are slightly smaller than american style. basically the same as the spanish bb just with different size bearings

I thought the mid BB was the same as the American without cups. Have the road style external bearings been tried on a BMX?

the mid is the same as the profile sized american without the cups.  it's different for 22mm spindles.

euro is like what you'd see on a mountain bike.

A.j, i doubt outboard bearings would work on a bmx, wouldn't it fuck the chainline?

175mm is normal. Go for that.

Race BMX bikes are using outboard bearings but usually with Shimano DXR's or Saints.
