    Is the Bottom Bracket on a Bianchi Pista threaded English or Italian?

    I just picked up a sweet pair of Dura Ace track cranks, so I'm looking for a BB to match for my 2004 pista, just want to make sure I get the threading correct.

    Figuring that Bianchi is Italian I would assume the later.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    I stand corrected.
