E-GRIFFIN 6100 - 2020
The Devinci Griffin E6100 is by far our most popular e-assist bike. With it's stylish low-step frame and upright position, this bike takes comfort seriously. Imagine a lightweight e-assist bike, made in Canada, that can take you nearly 185km on a single charge and flattens hills with its power.
A good e-assist bike is all about quality of engine and serviceability of engine. The e-Griffin's Shimano motor promises both. The E6100 engine is Shimano's latest iteration of their e-assist and the reviews have been spectacular. It is one of the lightest, most efficient motors on the market, and it's a sensational feeling to ride. The heart of any good e-assist motor is the computer that constantly reads your torque, wheel RPMs and pedalling cadence and continually 'edits' the power output, making a bike-mind connection that feels intuitive and utterly remarkable. Combined with a powerful set of hydraulic disc brakes, this bike is at home on a gravel trail as it is around the city.

Devinci Company History: Cycles Devinci is what you might call a true Canadian brand, established in Chicoutimi, Quebec in 1987 by two enthusiastic engineering students. In 1990 Felix Gauthier purchased half the company moving the brand into its contemporary role as an international player in both road and mountain bike manufacturing.
The brand has grown its U.S. and international distribution channels and is now a key supplier of professional road, mountain and hybrid bikes not to mention the outstanding success of the Bixi bikes used in bicycle sharing schemes in cities such as Toronto, Montreal and London, England.
Can I ride this bike in the city?
This bike was made for city riding! Being from Quebec, Devinci knows the urban Canadian cyclist very well. Unlike many other hybrids on the market, Devinci makes bikes that are as great for recreational rides as they are for inner-city use. Compared to their competition, a Devinci’s frame and wheels are stronger, many parts are rust-resistant, and the tires feature a puncture resistant Kevlar layer.
What’s the deal with disc brakes?
Disc brakes are awesome, here’s why: (1) because they stop the bike close to the center of the wheels rotation you get significantly more power, (2) unlike rim brakes, they sit high above puddles so braking performance is consistent in (most) weather, (3) they require less tuning and the pads last longer. They add a bit of weight, but it’s good weight!
This bike is aluminum, will it dent easily?
Nope! Devinci is Canadian and the city cyclist is well on their radar. Whereas most hybrid bikes are made for Sunday rides and stops at the ice-cream stand, Devinci’s feature a tough frame that can be locked next to steel poles all day while you’re at work (or grabbing an ice-cream!)
Will this bike rust?
Heck no! The great thing about Aluminum frames is that they can’t rust.
The wheels are quick release, how do I prevent theft?
Alas, most bikes sold in North America assume that you will someday put your bike into a car, which means you need to rapidly disassemble it. If your bike is your car, then you’re often left wondering why the wheels are so easy to steal. We recommend bolting the wheels on with a wheel lock system, either from Pinhead (which feature unique keys) or 49N (which use a non-standard tool).
How do I ensure my new bike won’t get stolen?
Estimates are that over 90% of bicycle theft is tied to cash-for-drugs and this (unfortunately) makes every bike a target. Make sure you buy a good U-lock or a chain and your bike will be safe. You can read more about bike theft here.
What’s the warranty?
Lifetime warranty for manufacturer defects on frame and fork, one year on parts. Does not include wear and tear.
