Great bikes... I've worked with this company for a few years, and i've got nothing but good things to say about them.

They're slowly penetrating the US market, and i'm sure they'll do fine...

Cheers!

Take a look at the bike Steve Bauer is riding in the latest issue of Velo News.

Now that he is buying his own bikes, I think the choice says something. Also, I have looked them over at the local store, they look and feel like pretty nice bikes, haven't ridden one yet but ths specs look good.
Not sure here and I'm not trying to start anything ...Ride-Fly

but I would think the Steve Bauer probably gets his bike for free. Not any bike he wants, but I would venture to guess that some bike company somewhere would be willing to give an old pro with a fairly recognizable name such as Steve Bauer their top bike so as to get a little free advertisement. Not sure on this as I had said because I haven't read the article and it might have said he "now buys his own bikes" or something to that effect. What is Steve Bauer doing nowadays? Is he in any way connected to the bike industry? Thanks and Ride ON!!!
Quite honestly, Bauer might just be testing bikes...tempeteOntheRoad

Or being paid to ride one in a bike mag... What's the diff...

DeVinci is a Lac St-Jean (Northern Quebec region, small business, good workmanship) company that has been doing really well in the mountainbike business. It also sponsors well-doing athletes. They have a good range of top road racing frames. They are not exotic to me, since I am from Quebec, but they, like Marinoni or Guru are absolutely at par with those venerable smaller frame builders in the States. You get them for much less, because of the value of the Canadian $$. They are well renowned for their Alu/carbon frames.

I think the main advantage would be to be able to buy a great bike with full campy record and a muscle fork in canadian money... Definitely worth a trip to Montreal!!
(Come to ride next summer!!)

Hoops! I feel like advertising my city!

Good bikes for sure they are. Really light (see the Imola!!!)
