    New question here. frame brake stud cover?

    I'm not sure if this is a brakes question.

    I've removed the brake studs (where cantilevers mount) from my frame and want to cover them up for a cleaner look. Does anyone know the size/thread pitch of the bolt needed to replace the studs? Is there a manufacturer that actually makes these specifically for bikes?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Size can depend on the frame make, most likely 8 or 10mm. Do a search on "brake boss plugs." Here is an example: Search results for boss plugs | Jenson USA Online Bike Shop

    Plugs! I was racking my brains trying to remember what it's called

    Thanks for that

    PS
    If I'm not mistaken, it's 8mm for fork bosses and 10mm for the frame.

    Man, what a diff just knowing what they're called. I did a Google search and found they're simply M8 or M10 by 1.25 thread pitch bolts. I'll try to see if my local hardware store has 'em.

    Thanks again.
