They are pretty solid straps. The guy at the store showed me a few kinds including those little leather ones. They had $30 straps but I wanted something that would last a long time. I also think he store i bought them from may be a little higher priced because it is a specialty shop. You also need to have bmx or bmx "style"
Pedals for them to work. Probably the best thing I have bought for my bike so far. Climbing and decending hills and stopping is so much easier.

It is lifetime warranty, but i stupidly threw out the 8 year old receipt, not expecting this.

you were supposed to bring in your whole bike to get the deal on the new ollie, not just the frame. Which explains why devinci was surprised rather..

devinci did more than standing by their warranty. They went beyond. i believe from 02 or 03 it was still only 2 year warranty on frames and you were missing a receipt, if you had your receipt you probably would've got a better deal, or who knows, they might have given you something at free of charge. typically if you DON'T have a receipt, manufacturers won't even sell you a bike at cost

not a life time, you can't look at current devinci warranty. they didn't have life time warranty until couple years ago

and a few more bikes that I own...


2008 Devinci Melbourne hybrid bike. One of the few bikes that I bought brand new. Hardly have put any milage on it...well, cuz, I have other bikes to beat on.


2007 Trek 7.5FX Disc hybrid bike. Ok, I ride this one quite often, for commuting, rain or shine.


1987 Giant RD540. My black beater road bike, this one sees duty often too.


Norco Monterey, converted into my single-speed/fixie. Only ride this to Main Street or Commercial Drive.


2003 Trek Fuel90. My XC mountain bike, wish I had more time to ride it.


2004 Brodie Rocket. Another XC Mtn. bike that I love, but rarely ride!

Okay, that's enough for now. I have a few more, and countless ones that I've use to own...

Really? Because i called up devinci before they shipped it, and asked if i needed to give them anything before they would let me purchase the bike, and the rep told me that i needed to give them the frame.

Fair enough, im not too sure about these things.But Devinci basically told me they werent gonna do anything about that when i first called them. It was the 2nd time around when they said they had some 2009's left in stock and could give me a price on one.

Thing is, that somebody i know had the exact same scenario, they called up devinci, got it to a shop, and got a 2010 frame for no cost. He also had no reciept, things turned out much better for him. Thats why i was also expecting a new frame, turns out he had some good luck or something.

I sold my only remaining road bike, a Bianchi, last year. I bought it in Seattle and had it for a good 3-4 years.

Now I'm looking for a fairly cheap, but reliable road bike for close commutes. Anyone able to recommend a shop? or a Craigslist page?

yep, you were supposed to send your whole bike. I suppose whoever talked to you from devinci fucked up or there was miscommunication, in the end it turned out better for you, considering you got to keep the all the old parts. Aside from cracking the seat tube on your new bike already after a week of having it. No warranty on that though.

That's not too bad looks like just a new derailleur hangar and it's good to go..... Unless I'm missing something here lol..

On my commuter I've broken like 3 hangars already, don't know how it happens but 15 bucks and a bit of tuning and it's on to riding again,.

It's just a bitch to have happen to you. A couple of spokes are bent as well. He will need to replace those, and true the wheel.
