Dura Ace is the way to go

Installed for my Dura Ace 7800 crankset. Installs easily, silent and smooth. Replaced my DA 7900 BB which had aftermarket ceramic hybrid bearings installed. The no load spin test is impressive. Real world, the Dura BB 9100 (or 7900 or 9000) is much better - smoother, quieter, less friction - yes folks... ceramics are not the best for low rpm (less than 10,000) applications. Ceramic hybrids wear poorly and create slop, noise, and increase friction. After several experiments and years of trying ceramic hybrid bearings, I'm sticking with DA stock (BB, derailleur pulley, and wheels).
