Hi Pierrecresent, Sorry I did not see your message for a while. 1. The bottom bracket is English 2. Best is to leave the headset alone. The headset is glued to the head tube. You must heat the head set gently, just warm enough to loose the glue not to hot with hair dryer. Never pound the headset off when the glue is settled in the it. You will crack the head tube. This happens to many Zipp owners. 3. Never drill holes through the frame to run wires. The frame will crack when pedal do to stress. Just run the wire outside with color electrical tape to match the frame color. 4. The best thing to do is just leave the frame alone. Many Zipp frames are damaged not because of riding but owners do not realized they make mistake until too late.
