    Confused about the DUB

    Got a new bike build happening. Little confused about the new standards.

    I have a DUB bsa BB. Threaded type.

    Currently have a set of NX cranks that I'm planning to upgrade to either X01 or XX1.

    Is the DUB BB backwards compatible with gxp cranks? I've been looking on PB and there are some gxp sets and some dub sets. Figured it didn't matter, since dub was supposed to be compatible.

    Also, can I use an AXS Xx1 crankset on a non axs drivetrain? In other words, is there anything special about the axs cranks that requires them to go with electronic shifter?

    Going on a new Ripmo build fwiw.

    Thanks!

    DUB BB is not compatible with GXP cranks.
    I think you can either
    1. Switch to a GXP BB
    2. Buy DUB crankset

    I'm not sure about AXS

    AXS is DUB standard.

    The DUB standard means a DUB crank will work on any bike... The DUB BB you buy is determined by your bike. You dont have to worry about spindle length anymore... 1 crank to choose from and you buy the appropriate BB.
