Getting a smoother spinning drivetrain starts with maximum friction reduction which is why many of the pro teams go with CeramicSpeed bottom brackets. Reducing friction at the crank is the first line of defense in nixing drivetrain drag and if your frame uses a BB86 shell and you're running a SRAM DUB crank, its BB86 SRAM DUB Road bottom bracket is the one you need. The BB86 standard allows for a wider bottom bracket shell and downtube junction, boosting frame stiffness and without metal threads, the setup usually comes in quite a bit lighter. Besides the added stiffness and gram dropping of the BB68 shell, by reducing bearing friction, you can ride for longer and faster with less effort. CeramicSpeed is an industry-leader in silky-smooth rolling bearings and the BB86 DUB bottom bracket allows you to take full advantage of the improved power transfer and lightweight design afforded by SRAM DUB with the silky smooth spinning of those famous ceramic ball bearings. Reducing friction not only saves watts, allowing you to ride faster with less effort, but it also helps the component last longer. The Danes at CeramicSpeed are downright obsessive in its quest to reduce friction which is why it offers bottom brackets for almost every standard on the market. And if you loathe friction as much as the crew at CeramicSpeed and want to go fast with fewer watts lost, upgrade your bike with one of its bottom brackets and enjoy reduced friction as well as better resistance against contamination and corrosion. Compared to steel ball bearings, CeramicSpeed's balls resist corrosion, which is in part responsible for why bearings start to feel gritty as they age as well as causing the bearings to run hotter which reduces the lifespan of the component. CeramicSpeed balls are also much harder than standard steel balls. Apply enough pressure to a steel ball and it will crack under load while under that same load the CeramicSpeed ball won't flinch, maintaining the exact surface finish ...

Maine ocean islands provide the only nesting sites for Atlantic puffins in the United States. Eastern Egg Rock in the midcoast region, Seal Island and Matinicus Rock at the mouth of Penobscot Bay, and Machias Seal Island and Petit Manan Island off the downeast coast provide habitat for more than 4,000 puffins each summer.
