Italian Threaded Bottom Bracket
Keep your old Italian bike on the road!
- Sealed, cartridge bearings for simplicity and longevity
- Classic square taper design
- JIS taper - works with most cranks
- Hollow, boron steel axle
- Aluminum cups
- 258g (110mm length)
- Available in 110mm and 118mm spindle lengths
- Includes crank bolts
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.
Use the Dajia Cycleworks Bottom Bracket Tool or Park Tool BBT-22 for installation.
Thanks to Velo Orange for having this type of bottom bracket available and affordable!! This allowed me to keep an old Bianchi rolling!
I had to swap the Italian bottom bracket for a French thread and Velo Orange customer service was very helpful. I just installed it and it fits perfectly on a beautiful blue Mondia Super. The seals are pretty tight but the spindle turns very smoothly. I will be installing a Velo Orange crank next.
