Thanks the CWP-7 did the job nicely on what turned out to be square-tapered cranks.

Uh, obviously the screw thread is the same as the cap (standard kind of righty-tighty, lefty-loosey).

Thanks, yes I tried that. Photo updated. The centre is a screw thread, though I can't tell which direction.

Yes, I think there's a big difference between a naff lock and no lock at all.

revised Do rubber bike pedals or rubber pedal covers exist?
Pretty sure the poster meant shoes for the pedals.

comment Good Quality Road Platform Pedals?
If you asked for help fixing your bike and someone replied, "Just take your car instead", you'd be annoyed that they didn't answer your question.

comment Clipless shoes & pedals and long distance
+1 for the point about walking. Many audaxing friends have advised that SPD is the way to go as you can get more walkable "touring" shoes with a recessed cleat. You never know when a mechanical failure or unexpectedly bad road/weather means you have to walk for a bit. I would guess SPD ws the most popular option on rides like: londonedinburghlondon.com (1400km)
