Hello,

I assumed the BB type would be Italian but the Campag BB I bought will not thread in. Can anyone confirm the type of BB used by ALAN.

Thanks!

The one I had was Italian threaded - but it was a 1980s model. I know it was Italian because the non-drive side kept unscrewing.

BSC have a left hand threaded fixed cup, whilst Italian is right hand threaded on both sides.

Have a look at the threads and see which way they go.

Pic as requested.

The frame has no braze ons so it's just got to be fixed.
