    New campy crank dust caps..........

    ....SUCK!

    they either don't sit right (flush) or the allen hole strips out!
    you would think for all the cash you spend on them things they would be quality.

    anyone else have these problems?

    I have some specialized caps thats blow too. The allen socket is completly circular so ill have to get out the dremel and make a slot next time I need to change/tighten my cranks.

    Anyone solid ones out there?

    A very respected bike mechanic told me not to use crank dust caps as all they end up doing is trapping water inside and do more harm than good. I take his word as gospel, so I don't use 'em anymore.
