    Dumb Question Time !

    I have recently put avid disc's on my Surly, I have removed the brake bosses as they looked useless now, is there anything I can put in their place to make my frame and fork look cleaner( and prevent the holes filling w/mud?)

    There are....

    some fancy-schmancy anodized & nicely machined plugs, complete with advertising, that are made especially for that purpose. Sorry, I don't remember where to get them, but someone will....

    But, if you want something that keeps the mud out and costs nothing, a presta valve cap inserted top-first fills the hole nicely, and there are plenty of spares to be found on the trail.

    edit: Here's the fancy ones I refered to:

    Another alternative is to visit a good hardware store and browse the "furniture hole plug dept". Ace has a good selection in the small parts bins.
