DeVinci bikes

Any recommendation about this brand?

In particular DeVinci Milano, Stockholm or St-Tropez?

It seems it's one of the very few brands that carry hybrids for my size (Standover < 700 or 27.5")

I own a Copenhagen performance hybrid by Devinci. It is a great bike with great specs. There are Canadian made (one of the few actually made in Canada) and come with good specs for the money. They also have a great warranty, better then most other manufacturers (life-time on the frame). I would recommend any of their bikes (I actually own 2!).

Devinci makes a lot of really nice bikes.
When my room mates GF decided she wanted to start bicycle commuting she picked up the ST-Tropez.
It is a beautiful bike and for the money it comes pretty nicely set up.
I almost picked up the Silverstone when I was in the market for a bike this spring but the deal I got on my Giant was too good to pass up.

Thanks guys!

If you were to chose between a Devinci and a Norco (both Canadian brands) which one would you pick?
They both have what seem to be very similar bikes for the same price.

Devinci Milano vs Norco VFR 6 for $420 CAD
Devinci Stocholm vs Norco VFR 5 for $550-6000 CAD

Nothing really wrong with a Norco, but I'd take a DeVinci. They're very nice bikes.

Sorry about the large picture, there is something wrong with my post (the photo is no where near that large).

I think the Devinci's are of a higher quality than Norco's but Norco's are still good bikes. If everything is the same between those bikes (price, components, etc) then go for the Devinci.

I`d say that Devinci wins hands down... That`s just me though.
