About Bottom Brackets
Bicycle bottom brackets connect the cranks to the bike and allow the crank arms to rotate. There are various sizes of bottom bracket shell on the market, so compatibility needs to be checked. The three most common frame bottom bracket shell widths are 68mm (English threaded road and mtb), 70mm (Italian threaded road) and 73mm (British threaded mtb). There are also many axle shapes and styles, from JIS or ISO square tapers through to the round splined axles such as ISIS or Octalink and then there is the new external cup systems which have the axle built into the crank arms. Some frames are now using the new BB30 system which uses bearings pushed directly into the frame and removes the needs for cups to be threaded into the frame.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
1. Sometimes 1 measurement is worth 1,000 guesses. Measure the width of the frame's bottom bracket shell. If it's 68mm, it's English. If it's 70mm, it's Italian.
2. Pretty certain it'll be BS thread - most Bianchis haven't been anywhere near Italy for years. Measure the width of the BB shell, 68mm = BS whereas Italian = 70mm. Likewise, if the cups has numbers printed on it, BS = 1.37"x24 whereas Italian would read 36mmx24
I say look at your tiagra cups, they should tell you as per #2.
I have a cannondale caad 9 and I have purchased a full groupset but no bottom bracket yet. Can you confirm the thread needed is British please?
Thanks in advance,
