    Soma 4one5 brake boss covers. How do I go about removing them?

    I'm ready to begin building the frame and I'm going with v-brakes in the rear so I can run a rack. Only thing is there are some covers on the bosses that clearly are removable, just can't figure out how. Would a vice grip or something work?

    Have you tried just yanking on them with your fingers?

    I had hose on some brand-new forks, and they just come right off with a little "pop!"

    Like these right?
