Hey there, thanks for taking the time to help me out.

I just got into the road thing about a year and a half ago to see what I'd think. For the time being, I had gone out and bought myself a Colnago off a good friend of mine to help cement my decision either way. Well, long story short, I have purchased a new Bianchi Luna frame/fork for this coming year and I am in the process of building it up with a full campy groupo. I can't wait for this season to start!

My question is, does anyone know if the bottom bracket on the newer Bianchis' are English or Italian? I'm at a loss.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
I'll post pics when it's done if you want.

Do you have the frame already? If so, measure the width of the bottom bracket shell. 68 mm means it's British, 70 mm means Italian.

If you don't like mm's, the Italian bracket has right hand threads on the drive side. The other does not.
