Hi, New to Bike Forums


I'm new to bike forums. I just bought a Botecchia frame set and fork. I'm planning on building it up from scratch with all Italian componentry. Anyway, my first introduction to the project and community is to ask does anyone out there know how I determine bottom bracket size for this frame set? Do I measure the bottom bracket shell on the bike? Any collective wisdom you can send my way would be greatly appreciated! I'm looking forward to building up the frame and learning the wisdom of this bike community!

Check out the mechanics forum. There is always somebody who knows this type of stuff.

Hi Davydo, welcome to BF, I am a former Botty rider from the 70's. Are you talking about a modern frameset or a vintage one? As Dudel said, the mechanics forum is a good place to start and if it is a vintage frame, the classic and Vintage Forum can guide you in how to determine the type of threading your Bottecchia's bottom bracket has, most likely either Italian or English. the people in either forum will be able to guide you about this, it isn't hard at all. Post your questions in the appropriate forum and get to know the members there.
