Are Shimano Octalink BB's English Thread? Looking at an FSA crank that needs an ISIS Bottom Bracket and want to make sure English threaded it what I need (its a Specialized frame). Also, I have the tools I need, I assume I don't have to do anything special to the frame before installing the new BB?

Shimano comes in both. It should be written on the BB.

Shimano BB's come in both English and Italian threading. Your Specialized uses an english threaded BB.

You need an ISIS English threaded BB
