Rear rack mount w/out braze-on Question - Trek Verve 1 Womens
My wife and I bought new bikes last year. I bought a Specialized Sirrus Sport and she bought the Trek Verve 1.
This year we decided to add rear racks and bags to our bikes. Mine has screws (braze-ons?) that make adding a rack easy - I hope
But on her bike, where I have screws, she has 'plugs'? I'm not sure what these are, or how / if they can be used to mount a rack. See the attached images for what I'm talking about. (sorry, iphone blurry)
Can these be place holders for screws? Hollow inside for using a not included set of screws?
If no one knows, I'll get over to the bike shop tomorrow and ask them.
She does have one screen centered between the rear caliper brakes that I think I could use too mount a rack (or fender?), but before ordering a rack I thought I try to see what other options she might have.
Suggestions for racks for either bike would be appreciated too.
