Check your local yellow pages for "fasteners". We have a Fastener Warehouse in the area where I buy rivnuts and other oddball stuff from their bins open stock.
I added rivnut water bottle bosses to my daughter's steel framed bike, but I'm not sure that I would be brave enough to drill an alloy frame. Some of that light weight tubing is already pretty stressed. If you do it, make sure that you use sharp drill bits and oil. You want a clean cut hole without inducing tiny stress cracks (intergranular fractures) radiating out from the hole.
