Default brake stud plugs?

I am curious if anyone has any good resources for plugs to stick into the frame where the brake studs go?

Most of the ones I have found are crappy looking plastic ones.

Sure, that's easy: X-Lite Canti Pivot Plugs

X-lite is a UK based company known for their light trick bits. Chain Reaction Cycles in Ireland would be happy to supply them, but I am sure there are other sources.

hey spikes the XLite plugs worked GREAT. there was another company I tried, hope makes cable guides for putting into 8 or 10mm rim brake pivots, their 10mm plugs were the wrong thread. :/
