I have an old steel frame Peugot road bike that I want to fit a bottle cage to. It has braze-ons but I'm not sure how to mount it. Can anyone advise? Pictures uploaded.

looks like plastic or rubber plugs in the braze-ons. Try to remove them — I think there are a threads under them. –  constpetrov Mar 25 at 17:05
    
If all else fails a couple of jubilee clips will be strong enough to hold a cage. –  PeteH Mar 25 at 18:54
    
@constpetrov you should make your comment an answer –  Mac Mar 25 at 21:10
    
@constpetrov Thanks for the comments. I think you are probably right about there being threads under the black plugs. They seem really in tight - maybe just hack at them with a screwdriver to try and loosen them do you think? –  user10689 Mar 26 at 9:06

@ChrisH Good idea - I'll try and put a screw in the plug and pull it all out together like a corkscrew! –  user10689 Mar 26 at 11:41

I was able to remove them. Used a knife as suggested by @Batman to prise them off then pull out with pliers. Screw threads underneath for the cage. –  user10689 Mar 31 at 8:02
