Keep your old Italian bike on the road!

Italian bikes used to have self-loosening fixed cups, until they realized it wasn't a great idea and many of them switched to English/ISO. This bottom bracket lets you continue that fine tradition if you've got no choice.

Please note that not all Italian-made bikes use Italian BBs. It's worth double-checking: the English shell width is 68mm, the Italian is 70mm. The Italian has right-handed threads on both sides, whereas the English has the drive-side reverse-threaded. Ask Sheldon Brown if you're still not sure, or write in.

  • Generally it is the crank model that determines spindle length, so check what spindle length the crank manufacturer recommends or measure your old BB. If between sizes, it's usually wise to choose the longer.
