While press-fit bottom brackets may be thrown around left and right, we've still got an undeniable soft spot for those with threads. Threaded bottom brackets provide less creaking and popping, plus the added benefit of ease of install. Should you be looking to build up your BSA threaded steed with a SRAM DUB crank, and you're one to covet drag reduction along the way, thread in CeramicSpeed's Coated BSA SRAM DUB Road bottom bracket, and up the ante on the peloton with the ability to go faster, and further, with less effort.

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 incre...
