    Two quick terminology questions, please.

    1. Does "English threading" describe the current standard threading for bottom brackets?
    2. Does "Campgnolo compatible" describe the current standard for threadless headsets in a frame?

    Thanks.

    Italinan threading is not uncommonon current bikes. There is Campy zero stack type internal HS that is a campy standard for which others have produced compatible knockoffs. Otherwise 'campy compatible' is meaningingless with respect to a typical non integrated or internal threadless HS system. If someone threw that 'campy compatible' jargon at me I would not have a clue what they might be refering to.

    Thanks, Sydney. I didn't understand the headset term either. I wanted to know if English threading is the right one for a Shimano bottom bracket. Take care.

    Shimano and Campy both make English and Italian threaded BB. And the campy HS refered to is called the 'hiddenset'.

    IIRC, there are two standards in integrated headsets...Campy and Crane Creek.
