    Corsa 01 : italian or english threaded?

    Hello,

    I have a Merckx Corsa 01 (Dedacciai zerouno frame) from around '97.

    Could someone tell me how I can find out if this frame fits english or italian threaded bottom brackets? I've read somewhere that all Merckx frames are italian threaded ...

    cheers

    68mm = English
    70mm = Italian

    ...it's probably Italian.

    As far as I can tell (and feel free to jump in and correct me here), all Merckx frames have been and are still Italian threaded. I have frames from three decades in three different materials - all Italian.

    I've never seen a steel Merckx with anything other than Italian threads. (I'm not sure either way about the other materials.)

    Ugo DeRosa set up Eddy's shop and reportedly built the first frames. So it would make sense that they would be italian threaded.

    Not all EMC steel frames had italian threads. There is at least one confirmed production series from 1992 (~D2500) with british threads. Probably there were more such series.
