Hello,

Can anyone identify the size of the Sram Bottom Bracket please?(english/Italian 68/70)
It says GXP and 42-09 on the cups.

That's an english / 68mm bottom bracket.

It says "BSA," which means, "British ... Something Awesome that I can't remember."

I'd say that 90% of SRAM/ Truvativ BB's out there are english...

Cheers! I'm guessing the 42-09 is the model number?

BSA = Birmingham Small Arms.
BSA does stand for Birmingham Small arms, but in the case of thread standards, we're talking about the Britsh Standards Authority. Close, but no cigar.
