Sometimes life throws you a curve ball. You think you know what you are doing and WHAM! Everything you knew to be real suddenly vanishes in a heartbeat. Friends ask, what will you do now? And you have no answer. Something will come to you if you allow it too. And it did. On the 30th floor of a swanky hotel on the Las Vegas strip, the idea for Rivet Cycle Works was born.
Knowing very little about the bicycle business, but being a long distance endurance bike rider, I know quite a bit about riding, and riding comfortably. I went to work on a line of leather saddles because everyone who rides a bike is at some point concerned about their saddle and how it supports them. More often than not, the saddle lets them down. Too hard. Too soft. Too narrow. Too wide. Too… Too.. Too… The list is long.
I set out to create a line of saddles that will make you forget the list allowing you to focus on your ride, which we know is the best part of cycling.
I chose leather over plastic. As a natural material leather will form to your unique anatomy providing individual comfort. Yes, it requires some care, but if you are serious about cycling, then you know you already are taking care of your bicycle. A little attention to your saddle will go a long way, you’ll see.
I have found a stellar group of master craftsmen who can produce a saddle that is firm, but forgiving. We have a design and features built with quality materials following high standards so that you can go your distance.
We hope to grow and provide you with a variety of quality products, but the aim will always be the same. To support your love of riding bikes, so you can enjoy your ride, be it down the block, or around the world.
