Interesting saddle. The aluminum rivets are clearly an "aftermarket" modification and I doubt they would hold up use without cracking and breaking. Those rivet edges are mighty thin for aluminum and there is a very large amount of tension put on rivets.

Note that the front rivets are still the stock Brooks ones; only the rear rivets have been changed. It would have been cool if they had replace all of them while they were at it.

Just my opinion of course...
