I'm looking for a Bike shop in the WC that has a RivNuts and RivNut tool to replace the Bottle Cage holes in my Specialized Carbon bike. Any idea's?

 

Looks something like this: rivnut

I have one, but thats not going to help you ;)

 

I think William @ Williams Bike Shop: 021 851 0919 may still have one too.

Well...I had to email a few ppl and they gave names to the " Screw in Bolt Thingy" that broke.. I got a reply from Cape Town Cycles, they say they might be able to help, it's that of sending the bike to Jhb...think not.

Dragons Sports has one. We usually do the bikes for the other wholesalers and bike shops. Take you bike into your LBS and get them to send it to us. We do not deal direct with the public, so please ask your LBS to contact us about price etc.

Thx, but I don't want to send my bike away. I can't wait that long, need to train on it every 2nd day so need some one that can fix it in one day. Gonna Try Cape Town Cycles. Francois could not fix it for me, he said the holes were to big ans suggested filling the holes up with carbon and then drilling new holes, I did not like that idea much, would rather they use the current holes, surly you should get different size Rivnuts?!

Try the people who do rubberizing on bakkies etc. They should have the tool. You should be able to buy diff sizes rivnuts from any bolt shop.
