    English threads, Chinese frame

    check this
    Is the Bottom Bracket on a Bianchi Pista threaded English or Italian?
    and this
    Bianchi Pista 08 Bottom Bracket

    Good you got a different crank than that POS that comes with a Pista.

    If you have the real deal Dura Ace crank you know you need an octalink BB and the size you mention is correct.
    It does not have to be the DA track BB, you can use the correct BB that is sold as a road BB, that's what I have.
