I'm avoiding one of my bikes cause one of the miche quill pedals is missing the dust cap. Its a small thing, but I hate using different pedals. I like so much.
I noticed that crank arm dust caps have the same threading, are there ones that have more of a dome which would work on pedals? Thanks.

I think I have a pair of pedals with one missing dust cover, I am willing to give up the remaining cover if you want it, since the pedals aren't too great. I plan to only use them as an emergency pair, so I won't miss it... Let me look, and if you want it, I can drop it in the mail to you. I will see if it is the right size by screwing it in to the crank arm...
If I find it, I will post a pic tonight.

mks dustcaps fit mks, campy, and campy copies

Unfortunately, the only crank dustcaps I've ever seen are too flat to work on any Campy or campy copy pedal I've ever seen, and I guess the Miche is a Campyclone, no? Plus they all have some kind of hole (usually a hex hole) which renders them useless as a dustcap to protect greasy bearings...no problem when you're only concerned with keeping threads clean as on a crank arm. You may have to bite and pay too much for an MKS as a replacement, or WAY WAY too much for a real Campy. When I'm being a real cheapskate (pretty often) I've gone hunting for plastic caps in the hardware store, sometimes one can be found that will work by jamming/screwing it against the pedal internal threads, sort of crude but I've had luck with it saying tight...sometimes.

Harris has the dust covers for the campy-copy MKS pedals.
