It's an Italian frame I am working on now, and I was hoping the BB is English threaded and the English threaded BBs I have on hand would work so I started screwing in the cups by hand to find out. The non drive side cup screwed in OK for a bit and then started getting tight after a few turns. The non drive side cup did exactly the same thing....so, would this be the symptoms that indicate the BB shell is Italian threaded then??
Funny thing is, the English threaded headsets I have seems to screw in all the way OK on to the fork steerer tube.
I'd just like to make sure before I go ahead buy an Italian BB for the bike.
