Any riders out there who can help with this:

Cipollini Bond frame is a BB386 (86.5x46mm), no thread, so I assume its press fit.

I'm still researching and undecided on the groupsets (Camp vs Shimano) but got stuck on the BB part

One online website selling Campagnolo Potenza/Chorus set has a BB included but their options are:
-English Thread
-Italian thread
-86.5x41mm pressfit
-68x46mm pressfit
-68x42mm pressfit

so my understanding is, none of the above will fit right since the Bond is 86.5x46

What if I wanted Shimano Ultegra, how do I go from 86.5x46 to something that can accommodate Shimano's 24mm axle?

thanks guys

Both Campagnolo and FSA have specific BB386 (86,5 x 46) press fit cups. I have used both, I prefer Campagnolo. I don't know about Shimano.

I thought they have threaded full adaptor like the Enduro torq tite bb386 to shimano 24

For shimano, you can either find a threaded adaptor bb (wheels manufacturing etc?), or use the standard PF386evo bearings with a pair of reducers down to 24mm such as FSA.
That's what i'm doing on my Bianchi as the lbs couldn't find another way to clear my p2m.
