    Bianchi Reparto Corse Bottom Bracket Question

    I have a rookie Italian bike question. I recently bought a 2000 Bianchi Reparto Corse frame and wanted to double check on the BB threads. I'm taking for granted this frame has Italian threads sense it was built in Italy. Thanks for any help.

    My Bianchi's are English threading.

    You can check by measuring the BB shell. 70mm=Italian, 68mm = English.

    Send Bianchi an e-mail? I've sent them a few and they have been helpful when they responded.

    I would bet it is English. I have a 2000 Reparto Corse "SL" - the one with the splash of yellow near the seat tube on the TT and seatstays. English... 68mm. Enjoy yours! What components are going on it?

    Hi there!!

    Is yours steel or aluminum? I ask this b/c I just had my 2000 Reparto Corse (steel) stolen and unfortunately I lost the serial number. Do you know if there is any particular formula for the SN? I have heard speculation that the year it was made and the size make up part of the serial number. Do you think this is true?

    My 2002-ish Bianchi Alloro (steel) is English thread. It even has "Made in Italy" right there on the frame.
