    Cinelli Xperience BB thread - English or Italian?

    Just bought a new Cinelli Xperience frame and ready to build it. I can't anywhere whether the BB thread is Italian or English. I'd think it's Italian, but found some links claiming that it's English. Go figure...
    Not even Cinelli website lists this information.

    Can anyone help?

    Borrow an English bb cup of any make and try to install it. If it threads in or matches the diameter, the bb is English, if it slips in with out catching the threads, it's Italian.
