    Italian BB Help

    I posted this over at the Road forum but someone suggested I might have more luck here.

    My new Pinarello frame needs an Italian bottom bracket. The seller from ebay said it was Italian 71mm which refers to the shell, right? Campy parts are going on this build, which of their BB's would I need as I saw options for 111mm and 115 spindle. A Veloce double crankset is being used.

    Thanks.

    BB shell is a nominial 70mm. 1mm either way won't matter much. Offhand I'd say 111mm, but I'm no campy expert.

    You know it's going to be a good day when the stem and seatpost come right out.
