Rivets on 2009 Cr1 frame

I have a much loved Scott CR1 comp 2009. Last weekend whilst riding an attempt to change to the big ring resulted in a nasty crushing sound. Limping home on the small ring it was obvious that the rivets holding the front mech in place had given way.

My LBS were naturally reluctant to clamp the seat post to fit a new mech. Instead I now have a wide 11-32 at the back with a single 50 at the front.

Do I have any other options? It seems strange that it cannot just be re-riveted, there is nothing wrong with the frame as far as I can tell>

Thanks for any wisdom
