I don't think he runs them that steep, the bike is tilted way forward in the bike stand simply.

Mike VS Mike: How We'd Spend Our Money - Video
@dtm1: Not to my knowledge, from what I can tell the Prime Minister of Sweden seems to be in good health :) (I'm not sure how this is related to the fund for Presidents though?)

Mike VS Mike: How We'd Spend Our Money - Video
I'd have gotten the new Spectral AL 6.0 for 2399$ (usd) Pike, eagle (gx), proper tyres and a dropper included in the price. The money left over I would not spend on a set of good wheels or some exciting suspension upgrades. No I'd spend half of it on donuts and the rest I would donate to the fund for presidents suffering dementia.

What's the Deal With SRAM's DUB System? More Questions
@WAKIdesigns: I can't answer for Shimano, since I've been on GXP for the last five or so years (without issues). But otherwise, the answer to your question is in the text above: "But as to not skirt the question, we can say that a large number of folks in the industry either know someone or have personal experience with the durability level of SRAM’s 24mm, GXP threaded crank/BB system. And what we can say is that every single DUB BB configuration now outperforms in the lab and in the field where we were from a contamination durability standpoint than our current GXP BB systems." So in short, SRAMs cranks and BBs just got better. The cranks got lighter with more compatibility and the BBs got more durable (maybe not by much compared to GXP, but still better, I guess time will tell). I get that this upsets many people, SRAM changed something and made things better for customers. This is a tuff nut to swallow, ranting on the internet is one of the few upsides of winter to many people out there. I hope you all will find spring and peace soon 3

What's the Deal With SRAM's DUB System? More Questions
@WAKIdesigns: I'll quote my self: "I think it sounds great, lighter cranks, better bearing life and I don't have to care what BB-interface my frame has, if I buy a SRAM crank it will fit. What's the downside?"

What's the Deal With SRAM's DUB System? More Questions
From one engineer to another... You do realize that SRAM never has made 30mm spindle for PF92? Or were you just so eager to show everyone that you got a diploma? Regarding the diameter, what is the standard you think that SRAM should follow? There is no 24mm standard, there is a BB30 standard, but it's more about the frame interface. It's not that hard to understand, they wanted to make a crank with a light aluminium spindle, that can fit in existing frame BB-interfaces. To get an aluminium spindle comparable in stiffness to a steel spindle it needs to have a larger diameter (one engineer to another, I guess you probably already knew this). But since the commonly used 30mm diameter leaves very little room for bearings and seals in a PF92 shell, SRAM decided to make it slightly smaller. How much smaller? Well I guess as small as they could make it without compromising to much on stiffness while still creating enough room for the bearings and seals. I think it sounds great, lighter cranks, better bearing life and I don't have to care what BB-interface my frame has, if I buy a SRAM crank it will fit. What's the downside?
