Dunno, it's easy enough to hose out. I have wondered though if it'd be a good place to use a D_Lock, no cutting access for the theives.

Yes easy enough to wash out, but a good place for some bike bling :)

Yes, on beay you can get them. They dont really fill anyway though and big enough to get something in it to clear.

I put my house key in the hole ..... somebody keeps pinching them as I seem to lose them on each ride, most perplexing as I don't see anybody about.

Sell the ht2 crank and get a square taper one instead that'll solve the problem.

One of my German suppliers had something that I think is for this purpose when I was skimming through their website yesterday.
