Standing for Durable Unified Bottom Bracket, or DUB for short, SRAM's latest push forward in crankset technology unifies all major bottom bracket standards under a newly introduced spindle diameter of 28. 99 millimeters, versus the previous 30 and 24-mililmeter spindles used by SRAM. Ultimately, that means the GX Eagle DUB Crankset is compatible with virtually any mountain bike, regardless if your frame uses a threaded, Press Fit, BB30, or PF30 bottom bracket. When DUB was first announced, we could already envision the eye rolls of the mountain bike community, seeing the changing standards seemingly imposed with every passing year. However, just hear us out before clicking away. SRAM focused entirely on improving the bearing longevity and sealing of DUB, then designed the spindle diameter to meet these needs, meaning it's ready for riding in wet and nasty conditions. SRAM was able to engineer a new crankset that's every bit as light and stiff as those with 30-millimeter spindles, but one that provides the increased bearing durability of 24-millimeter spindles. It's really a simple concept and one that elevates SRAM's Eagle DUB Cranksets to the top of the market, thanks to an optimal mix of lightweight efficiency, stiffness, and robust durability across all twelve gears. Seeing you don't need a major overhaul in components to run DUB Cranks, it doesn't feel so much like a newly imposed standard, but more like the next step in SRAM's continuously evolving line-up of drivetrain components. Of course, you will have to purchase a new DUB-specific bottom bracket for this crankset to work, but it's really a small compromise considering the system's ideal blend of lightweight performance and bearing longevity. Although SRAM tried to best accommodate every major bottom bracket standard, there were two types that aren't compatible, including frames with SuperBoost rear ends, as well as those using Cannondale's BB30 Ai standard. Outside of the DUB standard, the GX Eagle ...

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.
