Like others on here no doubt I've had a 'mare trying to find a pair of decent and proper looking crank caps for MT-60/M730 cranks (you know the ones). However, I happened to visit a new LBS that's just opened up in my neighbourhood today and discovered these...they weren't officially for sale (yet) but I worked a deal to buy one set of the two pairs they had. They certainly seem the best I've come across, I'll have them fitted later and see what they look like.

Unlike the Shimano ones they're stainless steel as opposed to chromed plastic so should look the part for time to come I reckon. It was a small local firm who are making these so if there's any interest I'll see if I can find out some further details :)
