    What bb thread for a C40 HP

    Hi Guys,

    Doing a bit of restoration on my C40 HP. Does anyone know what kind of BB they take? ie. Is it Italian or English threaded?

    Thanks

    Aren't current colnago frames english thread? I don't know when they switched from italian to english threading - so seems like a fair question, no?

    Yes it is a fair question. All new Colnagos ,with the exception of the Master X, are English thread. I too don't know when the change occurred, but I just got confirmation on the 2012's and this is where it stands today. The information on many websites was conflicting, so I went directly to Colnago of America.

    Considering the switch to English threading was a recent change and the C40 wasn't made after 2004...hmmm, must have woken from a long COMA!!!

    Just messing with ya!

    Have you posted pics of your C40? C40 pics can never get old in here brutha!!
    Ordered and Fitted for my Custom DEAN Titanium frame on Sept 17th, 2008. Finally got it in Oct, 2010!!!

    Thanks, I thought it was Italian but then I heard they had switched. Just needed to confirm!

    Will post pics once its gone through a refurb. Got most of the parts, just debating getting the paintjob touched up, especially around the dropouts.
