brake boss

The brazed-on pivots attached to frames and forks for cantilever and "V" style brakes. Shift lever bosses are brazed-on pivots for down-tube-mounted shift levers. Most newer "road" bicycles have the shifters mounted on the handlebars, so they use the old-style lever bosses as attachment points for housing stops
