Tauranga used to be full of the newly-wed and the nearly-dead, but it's changed lately. Right at the moment it's full of tourists.

kudude - that dust cap is not a dust cap, it's used to tension the cranks on the bearings while the pinch bolts are loose. Then you tighten the pinch bolts which locks the tension bolt in place.

Sorry, I meant Rival for 1/3 the price of Dura Ace. I paid USD$149 for Rival, the same vendor has Dura Ace for >USD$450. So the same price as your R700.
