the place where the front derailleur goes has a bracket(that sticks out) built into the frame. is this a braze-on or a clamp-on der type? and the top tube of the frame allows for internal cable routing to the rear brake. do i have to insert cable housing in the frame as well not to damage the carbon or is the cable housing inside the frame not required(because it's aluminum coated)? thanks again.

You'll probably run the cable housing all the way through the top tube. The only way the housing won't go inside is if there is a smaller diameter housing inside the aluminum tube but I've haven't seen that type in years.

The first # is the inside diameter of the BB, the second is the side-to-side width.
Also, look to see the orientation of the threads. If the drive side threads are reversed, it's an english BB. If they are common threads, it's an italian BB.
