    Bianchi Pista Concept ~ Bottom Bracket size?

    I'm very unfamiliar with bottom brackets in general which why I need some help!

    I just picked up a Bianchi Pista Concept frame for a steal on eBay and I want to get set to built it up!

    So I'm clueless about what size BB to install. If anyone knows please let me know, thanks!

    probably a 68 shell BB will do the trick (standard for most road/track bikes), spindle width depends on what cranks you plan to use. Cranks define the spindle type and width to get the right chainline.

    typically, but i think newer bianchi's use english bb. however, i think that may also depend if it is an italian made frame or taiwanese made.
