Simple. Dependable. Useful. The Trek Lync 3 is all those things for a rider who wants a commuting bike that is ready to ride, rain or shine, day or night. Trek knows bike commuting can be demanding, and the Lync 3 is up to the task with a light and corrosion-resistant Alpha Gold aluminum frame. The upright fit of the Lync gives the rider a better view in traffic, and is easier on the rider. Rubber “smack strips” keep the Lync 3 looking good while spending long hours locked in a bike rack. Internal cable routing keeps brake and shift cables out of the elements. The real genius of the Lync 3 is an onboard lighting system that is integrated into the bike itself. A rechargeable battery on the down tube features a weatherproof USB charging port for up to 5 hours of light, front and rear. A full-coverage, color-matched fender set is included. There’s even an aperture in the left chain stay for a Bluetooth/ANT+ DuoTrap speed/cadence sensor (sold separately), allowing the rider to keep track of riding data on his or her smartphone or Bontrager Trip handlebar computer.
The components needed to be as robust as the frame, starting with a single-ring 44T Bontrager Nebula crankset for reduced weight and maintenance. A Shimano 9-speed shifter operates a mountain-bike rear derailleur across an 11-34T cassette, providing a wide gearing range. Keeping speed reigned in goes to a pair of cable-operated Tektro Novela disc brakes. Bontrager AT-750 alloy wheels are wrapped with 32mm Hard-Case Lite tires with reflective strips that improve nighttime visibility. An alloy Bontrager SSR seatpost, SSR saddle, Low Riser handlebar and acessory-ready Blendr stem complete this bike for a street-smart machine.
