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. Mar 25 '14 at 17:05
  • If all else fails a couple of jubilee clips will be strong enough to hold a cage.

  • @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?

    @ChrisH Good idea - I'll try and put a screw in the plug and pull it all out together like a corkscrew!

  • 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.

  • Other words (for the search engines to find) are "bung" and "grommit"
