No water bottle bosses on the Centurion - can I drill the frame?(3 posts)

No water bottle bosses on the Centurion - can I drill the frame?BowWow

I'd like to mount a pair of Tacx Tao cages my wife gave me for Christmas, but no bosses. Steel frame, nothing special. Can I drill and pop in some bosses? Should I drill and braze nuts on over the holes? Any suggestions?

Yes, and the tool used to fit the bosses is a riv-nut gun, very similar to a rivet gun that will friction-fit a recessed threaded nut inside the tube with a small flange on the outside.

I recently had my new Bianchi Pista drilled for 2 water bottles at my LBS. They had the Rivnuts and the required tool to install them. Only cost me a 6-pack for the mechanic.
