read through this. https://www.sheldonbrown.com/bbtaper.html
note the taper varies and there is no definitive guide. some are unique, some are ISO, some require an asymmetrical spindle like campy so getting the correct BB can be a huge pain (i got lucky and got one from Bianchigirll and ronald mcdonald house benefited to this day)
