English or Italian bottom bracket?

Italian; I think all Colnagos are.

Response:

That's too bad. I would have bought your frame if it was Shimano compatible. I have all Dura Ace components.

Me:

Shimano has Italian threaded bb's, too! Looks like you are on the hook, then.

Several pro teams run Shimano on this very frame.

He can always take it to a frame builder and have them chop off the frame at the Bottom Bracket install an English bottom bracket shell ;) Maybe the guy was traumatized when he tried to play VHS tapes in a BetaMax.

You think someone riding Dura Ace Components would know better. Then again, I have ridden on group rides with people on $2500 mountain bikes who could not change a flat.
