Italian BB

Hello, I have an Ofmega BB with an inscription that says 36x24F. I would like to know what crankset would be compatible with this BB. Any help would be appreciated.

You're going to need to give a lot more information than that to get an answer.

Can't answer your question based on the limited information, but I can give you a tip: always install Italian bottom brackets with a generous helping of olive oil, as recommended by the Italian manufacturers.

By this question it tells me you need to do a bit more research on bottom brackets.
All the information you gave us tells us that it is threaded and Italian thread.

Is is cup & cone? cartridge? external bearing?
How long is the spindle? Does it even use a spindle?
Shell width, although Italian is likely 70mm
crank/spindle interface? square taper? JIS? ISO? HTII?
All these things need to be known give anyone a hint what crankset might fit it.

I also suspect you actually have an "OFMEGA" BB not an "OMEGA"

Please see general information in this link. Looks like it is it's own taper and will only fit limited cranksets.

I'm not an expert, you may want to post in C&V where the experts hang. I'd also suggest you post some clear pictures of the BB
