Use a small piece of electrical tape to cover the hole. Get a colour to match your frames.rc51kid said:Where can I get some plastic water bottle bolts? I don't usually use water bottles so mostly they will just be filling the holes. I have a few bikes that I need them for and I am looking for someplace that sells them.
picked up a bag from amazon myself @ $3.11 inc free shipping & no tax - but 100 is vastly more than i'll ever need743power said:I got a bag of 100 or something for like $2 on amazon with free shipping. They are white, but they have been holding bottles on my road and mtbs for years without issue.
lol! i've no plans to replace titanium rotor bolts with melty nylonforgiven_nick said:Are you intending to use these to mount rotors to wheels? Are they strong enough for that/will they not shear off from braking forces? I have heard that aluminum rotor bolts are even questionable for this application due to shearing forces. Is that true?
err, okay thenforgiven_nick said:I wanted to make sure because you mentioned replacing 22 bolts and I tried to figure out where they all were going and figured it had to have included the rotors to get that many bolts replaced! Yes, you are right, they would probably get melty as well as shear off if used as rotor bolts!
Looks clean. Nice work.I'm probably digging up an old thread here, but give this post of mine a look. I found some plastic dome plugs from Mouser (an electronics supplier) that very nicely snap into water bottle / accessory mount holes. My kitchen scale only registered 1g for 15 plugs, and they cost $0.13/ea (or $0.09/ea in 100-piece quantities).
These are way cheaper / easier to find than plastic screws, and they come in black.
