    Rivet Pearl

    This may be a bit ongoing but have to share.
    I tired out the Rivet Pearl at NAHBS in March,
    Ordered the Pearl with cromoly rails in burgundy, rode it about 100 miles, liking it very much.
    The Bike Hermit sold it out from under me (hee, hee) as Rivet is out of stock, well they had white but I don't do white.
    Put the old fizik's back on UGLY, UGLY couldn't believe the difference.

    So I ponied up the cash and bought a new Rivet Pearl w/ Titanium rails

    Oh my, I am so happy. I have only ridden it 5 miles as I just got it but I can already tell it was a smart choice as we are riding 105 miles on dirt road the first of June and I knew I wasn't going to be able to take that on the fiziks.

    Deb, at Rivet said she should have the cromoly back in stock mid June so I will be able to put back in the store. photo is w/cromoly rail

    Those Rivet saddles looked really nice at the NAHBS, if I were in the market for another saddle I'd seriously consider one.

    But, my Brooks saddles show no sign of letting up, and I'm happy with how they fit me, especially the Team Pro. So it goes.
