Black caps

Hi, I wonder if anyone could help me. I have 2 black caps on the inside of the bar that is opposite to the chainstay. They are quite close together and the caps are about the size of a five pence piece.

It is a Scott aspect 45

The reason I ask is that they are made from plastic and fall out easy. Are there any alloy replacements that I could buy to replace them?

They seem to have a screw pattern on them but are not very tight.

thanks in advance

Steven

    There's a prize for the first person who can guess what they are.

    Doh! Of course :roll: :oops: :)
  • Nice one cheers Nicklouse for your tidy input.....

    kickstand mounts are a bit far back...thought they would have been nearer the bottom bracket.

    Will try and find some bolts to fit now thank you may well get the correct size now.

  • Ok does anybody know where I could get some bolts the correct size for the holes as the plastic ones keep falling out and I will never be getting a kickstand.

    any bolt shop so B&Q or Halfords or your LBS or just leave them out.

    dab of glue on them?
  • Yeah think i might go that way actually and glue them. I also might paint them white to match the frame...bosh job done.

    Cheers
