Trek Domane+ LT powers up Fazua drivetrain for sub 30lb e-bike for the road…

first_imgWhen the drive system is removed, there is an available cover that will keep the inside of the frame clean and will also make it look like there isn’t a large chunk of the frame missing.Built with a 250Wh battery, the Domane+ LT will provide assist up to 20mph, and has an average range of 65 miles. Road bike or e-Road Bike? What if you could have both in the same frame? That’s what the Fazua Drive system has promised, and now it looks like it’s coming to North America on the all new Trek Domane+ LT e-road bike. We’ve written about the Fazua system a number of times from Eurobike and on a number of different bikes, but according to Bicycle Retailer, their entry into the U.S. market was hindered by battery certification issues. Now, Fazua seems to have passed those tests and has teamed up with QBP as a service partner.What makes the Fazua system unique? Not only is the electric drive system impressively light, it can also be completely removed from the frame so that the bicycle can be used as a standard, human powered bicycle. That makes a 56cm Trek Domane+ LT a 29.9lb e-bike, or a 23.6lb road bike! Sure, that’s a slight weight penalty over a standard road bike, but for someone who might want electric assist some of the time and a standard bike the rest of the time, it’s an interesting option. The 500 Series OCLV Carbon frame itself includes Trek’s IsoSpeed front and rear to absorb road chatter, with the rear offering adjustability like you’d find on the regular Domane. Just behind the front IsoSpeed unit, you’ll find integrated controls for the Fazua system on the top tube – which keeps the handlebar area clean and uncluttered of any extra control units.Tire clearance is huge with room for 700c x 38mm tires, and of course disc brakes will slow you down when needed. Stock bikes will include Bontrager R3 Hard Case tires in 700c x 32mm.Available now, the Domane+ LT is offered for $6,499.99 with a Shimano Ultegra R8000 drivetrain and is available through Trek’s Project One custom program so you can customize the paint and spec.trekbikes.comlast_img read more

first_imgDEONTAY WILDER is no longer a world heavyweight champion after losing his WBC title in emphatic fashion to Tyson Fury.The Bronze Bomber was well beaten by the Gypsy King and saw his corner throw in the towel in the seventh round after continued damage to his ear.Wilder was rumoured to have suffered a burst eardrum during the fightCredit: ReutersWhat is the latest update on Deontay Wilder’s injury?Reports immediately after the fight suggested that Deontay Wilder had suffered a burst eardrum.And concern grew for the Bronze Bomber when he was unable to attend his press conference amid rumours he had been taken to hospital.However, ESPN’s Dan Rafael later tweeted to state that Wilder was not rushed to hospital as he was made to wait in his dressing room to provide a urine sample.And Wilder’s co-manager Shelly Finkel then said that the Bronze Bomber had sustained a cut to his ear, which was stitched up in his dressing room.After the fight had finished, Wilder trainer Jay Deas blasted coach Mark Breland for throwing in the towel.He said: “Mark threw the towel. I didn’t think he should’ve. Deontay’s the kind of guy that’s the go-out-on-his-shield kind of guy.“He [Wilder] will tell you, straight up, don’t throw the towel in.”Following the defeat, Wilder has been handed a six-week medical ban from boxing.What happened with Deontay Wilder’s ring walk outfit?Deontay Wilder was blasted by fans for making the “worst excuse of all time” after he blamed his “heavy” £31k ring walk outfit for his defeat. The Bronze Bomber came covered head-to-toe in a 45-pound costume for Black History Month.Wilder notably had little power in his legs during the fight, with many pundits attributing that to the early blows taken from Fury to his ear.But he told Yahoo: “He didn’t hurt me at all, but the simple fact is … that my uniform was way too heavy for me.“I didn’t have no legs from the beginning of the fight. In the third round, my legs were just shot all the way through.“It could easily be told that I didn’t have legs or anything. A lot of people were telling me, ‘It looked like something was wrong with you.’Deontay Wilder claimed his ring walk outfit was too heavy for himCredit: AP:Associated Press“Something was, but when you’re in the ring, you have to bluff a lot of things.“I tried my best to do so. I knew I didn’t have the legs because of my uniform.“I was only able to put it on [for the first time] the night before but I didn’t think it was going to be that heavy. It weighed 40, 40-some pounds with the helmet and all the batteries.“I wanted my tribute to be great for Black History Month. I wanted it to be good and I guess I put that before anything.”Frank Warren gives his opinion on Deontay Wilder’s ring walk costume after loss to Tyson Fury 8 MOST DANGEROUS RAINS of All Time | TOP 10 INTERESTING Travel Diary // Vietnam 2017 DayZ Amazing Mods ~ More Cars, More Guns, More Gore! 10 INCREDIBLE Space Launch Failures!
