Singlespeed & Fixed Gear - rear brake gone, now what?
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes.

Hey everyone, just like to start off saying thanks for the insight I've gathered from this site in doing my first fixie conversion - a very nice '84 Schwinn World Sport that was about as good as I could ask for. I would have been pretty frustrated without all the help.
I just removed my rear brakes so now there's just the drill holes in the frame. My question is, what do you all use to plug up the holes without looking ridiculous? I've got a too long nut and bolt with washers set up now. The front brake is staying.

I just smear some lanolin in mine to keep the water out. I bet most people don't even bother to do that.

just kidding, I have the same problem on my '77 Le Tour. Bump
If you really needed to do it, just use caulk to fill it ?

Thanks for the replies guys. I think I will try to rig up a bottle opener through it. I'll let y'all know how it goes.
