The riv-nuts sounds like an interesting idea. Is that something shops do regularly? I don't currently have too many tools at my disposal and the holes would have to be widened since they're just about the exact size of the bolts used to attach cages.
@Busdriver - The holes are off to the side. I believe that is because of the non-roundness of the tube. The tube is triangular with the point facing upwards. I believe they put the holes there because its flat and would have been difficult to make the holes right in the center, especially if you're doing by eye in your garage, which is what I believe the case was. Either way, having a cage there doesn't impede peddling in any way (she rode it around with the cage there before we bought it).
