|Devinci Road Bikes?||Velocipedio|

|Anyone know anything about Devinci road bikes? I know they're made in Quebec, and the price/spec ratio is very, very good. But I don't know anyone who owns one, and they don't have any road racing cred... follow this link [http://www.devinci.com/2001/velos%20f/a.podium.html] to the model I'm considering.
Any help would be appreciated.

|I talked to a Devinci rep at a NORBA National a couple of years ago. They are a pretty small operation. He said that if I had any real technical questions about the bikes that I could call the factory and talk to the man who built them personally. I thought that was cool, to be able to talk to the person who would build your bike and not some non-rider in a cubicle. I've since lost the number, though. You could probably do the same. They looked well built, and the rep was enthusiastic to point out the finer points of the bikes.|

|Yeah, I'm pretty familiar with their MTBs, which have a great reputation among riders. I'm leaning toward the Devinci because (A) it's kind of a craft operation and (B) their prices are so, so good -- @ $300 less than comparably spec'ed Specialized and @ $450 less than a similar Trek. [Canadian pesos, BTW.]
I want to get a decent road bike for training and, if I really take to the road [I'm a MTBer] I might get a frame made-to-measure in a couple of years.

|I have had the Cevinci Chicane and now the Devinci Silverstone. LOVE 'em. Excellent value for $$$. Hand made, superior components, and Canadian.I have yet to hear anything bad about them|| |
