Kogel Bearings boosts compatibility with new DUB bottom brackets

first_imgKogel Bearings is known for high quality ceramic bearings for wheels, derailleur pulleys, and bottom brackets. They recently introduced an expansion of their bottom bracket line, with a full suite of SRAM DUB-compatible options. All of the new choices are designed to fit any crank and frame without adapters and carry a “2-year, very-few-questions-asked warranty”.Kogel Bearings DUB Ceramic Bottom BracketsWe don’t know if it was planned or not, but Kogel announced these bottom brackets on the same day as SRAM’s introduction of the new 12-speed AXS road components. If you’re not familiar with the SRAM DUB standard, it’s designed to be a backwards-compatible, frame-friendly design that combines the benefits of a large-diameter aluminum spindle with the bearing durability of 24mm steel spindle setups.Here are the Cliff’s Notes: the 30mm spindles used on BB30, PF30, and similar standards are so large that the bearings and seals must be downsized in BB certain applications – due to constraints of the outer bearing race diameter. DUB solves this by reducing the spindle size to 28.99mm, giving a bit more breathing room for larger ball bearings and better seals. While originally introduced as a mountain-specific standard, it has now officially expanded into road and gravel.Kogel already offered the four mountain bike DUB standards, but just added the road-focused Italian threaded, 386EVO, BSA, and BBRight. That brings the full compatibility list to the following:PF30BB30English threaded (BSA, BSC, ISO)Italian threadedBB86BB92BBRightBB386EVOAll of the Kogel DUB-compatible ceramic bottom brackets have two seal options – standard “Road” and a heavier-duty “Cross” version. Regardless of the option you pick, they retail for $200 and are available now at the link below.Kogel.cclast_img read more


U.S. Open 2019: Rafael Nadal rallies after second-set stumble

first_imgHowever, Nadal’s hugely impressive reaction after dropping the second set was that of a player still somehow operating at the peak of his incredible physical powers.Cilic faded rapidly following a supreme third set from Nadal, who secured a 6-3, 3-6, 6-1, 6-2 triumph in two hours, 48 minutes, booking a quarterfinal with Diego Schwartzman. Related News U.S. Open 2019: Serena Williams calms fear over ankle injury Nadal began a run of three successive breaks in the fourth game, the key blow coming two games later as a superb flicked forehand gave him the initiative once more after Cilic had struck back.Cilic fired wide on the return to give the Spaniard the opening set, but the Croatian was a different animal in the second, pairing his unwavering ambition with accurate groundstrokes and deftness at the net.He broke for a 3-1 lead as Nadal looped a mishit backhand long, an error that proved enough for Cilic to become the first player to take a set off the 18-time grand slam champion in the tournament.Cilic’s squaring of the match only served to fuel Nadal, however, and the world number two broke in the fourth game of the third in astonishing fashion.It just keeps getting better @RafaelNadal | #USOpen pic.twitter.com/HTSTR9XwsA— US Open Tennis (@usopen) September 3, 2019Nadal twice attempted to lob Cilic and, after the Croatian met the second with a desperate smash, unleashed a cross-court backhand to bring up three break points, with the 2014 champion double-faulting on the first.
