do those rivets get hot if you leave your bike out in the sun?

but I have to take a break at some point- I can't ride 85 miles straight yet, and there's not always a shady spot to park my bike

OK, yes the rivets DO get hot when they sit in the sun. They ARE metal, after all? And anything gets hot sitting in the sun eh? But it's a simple matter of thermodynamics...

(mass of copper rivet)(heat capacity factor)(change in temp)=(mass of your A$$)(heat capacity factor)(change in temp)

Since the mass of your A$$ is far more than the mass of the copper rivet, I don't think that the heated copper rivet would raise your A$$ temperature substantially that you would notice.

Problem solved! :-)
