I'm wondering, does anyone have the tools necessary to replace the rivet for where you screw in the water bottle cage? The screw broke when someone (not me;)) was screwing in a water bottle cage, and I finally got around to removing what was left in the hole (well, most of it). In the process, the rivet now rotates freely in the hole. I know you can replace the rivet, but don't have to tools for it. Does anyone have one of those rivet removal tool thingys?

If not, can someone recommend a LBS around Tama New Town that could do the work for me? The closest one around my house is Cycle Base Asahi, and I know they can't do the work.

Thanks.

I have a similar problem. This page from Park Tool might be helpful for you. It wasn't for me.
