Rubber Crank Dust Cap ?
Does such a thing exist or do I need to make them?
I am using early-80's Sugino GT cranks that are straight and in fact the mounting end of the crank where the dust cap goes sticks out a bit further than where the pedal mounts. Because of this I am bashing my ankles quite good when mounting or doing other odd maneuvers on the bike - for normal cadence pedaling I don't hit them. I noticed that modern cranks sweep out quite a bit more than these old ones and don't have a bulb where the mount to the bottom bracket (i.e. I never bash my ankles on my other bike)
