If you're building up a bike with a PF86 bottom bracket shell, or your current steed's BB has seen better days and you're running a GXP style spindle, upgrade to the BB86 SRAM GXP Road from CeramicSpeed and enjoy some drag reduction and a smoother drivetrain. You'll instantly discover the ability to go faster and ride further with less effort. This Coated version features a metallic coating on the bearing races, thus making it even harder and smoother, for a further increase in durability and a reduction in drag. Reducing friction not only saves watts, letting you 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 optimize your bike to go as fast as it can, upgrade your bike with one of its bottom brackets and enjoy reduced friction as well as better resistance to contamination and corrosion. The Coated version also extends the warranty an additional 2 years over the standard version for a total of 6 years. 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 and roundness which could affect spinning smoothness. Meanwhile, these non-round and rough ball bearings create increased friction and begin to quickly wear down the steel bearing races. CeramicSpeed is able to achieve such high marks because it uses the highest quality Grade 3 Silicon Nitride for its bearings. Don't be fooled into th...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
