    Possible Dumb Q Re: Truvativ Crank/GXP BB

    Is there supposed to be some sort of dust cap on the drive side opening? The left has a self extracting crank bolt. Is the right just open to the elements? I am assuming the answer is yes.

    I just got a used Truvativ Elita and it's really the first modern crankset I've owned (all others being square tapered) and it seems strange to me to leave that opening into the hollow spindle.

    Yup. It just stays open.
