    Hi all,

    I kindly ask you where could I get / order this rubber caps (or maybe plastic?) for empty holes in place for front derailleur? I'm from Europe.

    I would get some clear RTV Silicone sealant and put that in the holes. The little POS caps will only get lost again so why waste the money.

    Thank you for you answer, but I won't filling holes with silicone, I rather leave bolts in it.

    I picked up some silicon frame plugs from JensonUSA made by Problem Solvers. As mopartodd mentioned, they fall off pretty easily. I put one on and after my first ride, it was already missing. I might pickup some stainless M5 button screws, batter them in some grease and screw 'em in. Or just put a dab of silicone as mentioned above. If I ever need to use those mount points, the screw will clear off the silicone plug.
