    A little confused with regards to Bottom Brackets

    OK, i need an issue cleared up, with standards to bicycles threads (for bottom brackets). I have checked "sheldon Brown" but i really did not get my answer..

    Correct me if i'm wrong:

    English/British/Euro: The standard MTB and road.And some BMX




    Ashtabula/American: old school BMX





    Mid: standard BMX


    French-Swiss-Italian: extinct

    So my question is wtf is this "spanish" style bottom bracket?

    Secondly, by my this logic will a Euro BMX bottom bracket thread into a MTB bottom bracket shell?
    B.P.
