    Since Pinarello switched production to the far east, they swapped to BS threaded
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    if you want to check measure it.

    and look at the threads the Italians do it wrong.

    well just measure it as Italian BB are all 70mm

    but as above.

    Cos both cups screw in the same way, so one is prone to loosening. BS tightens anticlockwise on the drive side and clockwise on the non drive side, so both stay put.

    As usual, Sheldon explains it all more eloquently / extensively.
