Electricity seems to be finding its way into bicycles more and more these days. From e-bikes to electronic shifting, batteries are everywhere. But not everyone needs all that, they just want to see and be seen. Enter the new Trek Lync, a city bike with fully integrated lighting and a USB rechargeable battery. The Lync has everything built in.

There are two models: the Lync 3 ($899) has a 1×9 drivetrain and mechanical disc brakes, while the Lync 5 ($1,199) has a 3×9 drivetrain, hydraulic disc brakes and a low-profile rear rack included. Both come with fenders included.

Both include an integrated 500 lumen headlight, more than enough to illuminate a dark street, plus it is height and power adjustable. It connects to a removable battery on the downtube so you can take it inside and charge it via USB when needed. Trek says it should last about two hours on high power.

The taillights are neatly integrated into the frame as well, and won’t be blocked by any rack or bags you’re carrying.

The Lync bikes are also compatible with Trek’s DuoTrap S speed and cadence sensor system, so you can record you rides wirelessly through one of Trek’s cycling computers, a GPS device or your smartphone.

We have a Lync bike on the way for a full review, so check back soon for details!
