So, fitted a Raceface x-type chainset and all works well. However, the non drive crank has a big hollow exposed right through the middle of the axle where the cdank bolt would go on a square taper crank. Should there have been a plug or bung for this? Seems odd to just have a place for mud and crap to build up. Still, if its meant to be like that then its all good I guess!

Fair enough. Seems odd if you ask me though.

Believe you can get the bungs on ebay.

All hollow axle chainsets that i know of have this now.

If it gets in it wont do anything or go anywhere apart from come out the other side.

Glad that you like the new crank. As far as your question about the Non-Drive arm, there is no cover for that spindle /crankarm interface. Most external bearing cranksets have the spindle hollow through to the crankarm with no cover, and it never proves to be a problem. Thanks for riding RaceFace!

Asked Raceface about this a couple of years back and got this. Bunged one with a champagne cork for a bit.
