    Default SRAM Force Crank & BB compared to Dura Ace Crank & BB

    For people that have tried both of the SRAM Force and Shimano Dura Ace crankset and bottom brackets, which one did you prefer and why? Thanks.

    Nothing to add here, but I'm curious why you're comparing DA and Force, and not DA and Red.

    Are the prices and weights similar?

    09 Force versus DA 7900.

    I know that the 09 Force BB are mediocre at best and most people upgrade to the Red BB. Just curious if people have tried both and how they compared.

    The ring spacing on 7900 is different then 7800 and SRAM. I am not sure if that means you need to go to an all DA 7900 drivetrain or you can just switch out the crank and use the 7900 crank with other gruppos, including 7800.

    Rival/Force bb's felt like they had sand in 'em

    D/A feels like the inside of a virgin's thighs
