@Calnago or @Graeme should be able to answer you on that. If I remember correctly, Calnago stated that they changed the inner sleeve to not include the sleeve, BUT that was on a C60.

I thought they were the same actually, C60 and V2R, both are Colnago's threadfit 82.5, so all your would need is Ultra-Torque cups if you are going Campy.
On the C60, if I'm right, one could take out Colnago's threadfit and replace it with a T47 bb...

On the Ceramic website, looks like V2R and C60 share the same bb but they call it T45....

I'll let the experts answer you

if i use the ceramic t45 and the colnago cups in the frame can be unscrewed is the bracket shell a different diameter as the aluminium shell would be a smaller diameter if it fits into the shell i have checked the ultra torque cups they will fit into the colnago cups already in the frame but i like the idea of threaded cups and i am not sure about threaded carbon

All V2R’s that I’m aware of have the Threadfit cups threaded into some alloy sleeves on either side of the frame. The alloy sleeves are permanent but the Threadfit cups are removeable and replaceable. If you want to use a Ceramic Speed T45 BB, you should just need to remove the Threadfit cups then install the Ceramic Speed option in their place.

Silverbark, the Ceramicspeed bottom brackets thread directly into the bottom bracket shell. However, the installed Threadfit82.5 must be removed. All four Ceramicspeed T45 bottom brackets include bearings. So, if you're installing a Shimano, SRAM or BB30 crankset you simply intall the cranks. If you're installing a Campagnolo UT crank you remove the bearings from the crank arms. Per CS:

The spindle, not the bottom bracket, is where bearing sit on Ultra-Torque, pressed against the arms. A removal/installation tool is necessary; we sell one here, but any appropriate tool will work. Spacers are included in case the bb shell is too narrow.

So while the Ceramicspeed T45 bottom brackets require that you remove the threaded 82.5 cups unlike a standard installation on a Colnago Threadfit frame (the current version or the previous version with the bonded aluminum sleeve), you're not required to press in another bottom bracket (PF86, GXP, BB30) or Colnago UT cups. No more cups in cups.

edit: Calnago beat me to it. :beerchug:
