Bikes: '''96 Litespeed Catalyst, '05 Litespeed Firenze, '06 Litespeed Tuscany, '12 Surly Pacer, All are 3x8,9 or 10. It is hilly around here!

I don't recognize either the make or model. What type of frame is it, what's the country of origin and when was it made? The answers should help determine the threading. Another approach is to take it to a bike shop and have them try a couple of cups for fit.

OK, it's a current carbon/Al blend frame, probably Taiwanese made. I'd bet a lot it's English threaded. These days even most Italian name-brand frames are English threaded.
