Logo FS10 Electric Bike Review Part 1 – Pictures & Specs
The new lightweight Logo FS10 with removable Fazua mid-drive system has arrived for testing & review!
And that means that you can remove the motor & battery to quickly convert it to a lighter non-electric bike in seconds; 2 bikes in 1!
The Logo FS10 is a sporty and sophisticated eBike designed for the daily commute and long rides on paved or gravel roads.
Some of the highlights of the FS10 are a hydroformed aluminum frame, carbon fork, Shimano Deore 10 speed drivetrain, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, and a high quality accessory package.
The Logo FS10 is priced at $4,999 USD.
In this first part of the testing & review you will get a detailed look at this bike with a BUNCH of pictures and the specifications.
Part 2 of the Logo FS10 testing & review will give you info on the ride characteristics, results from the range test, pros, cons, and overall thoughts on this eBike.
Alright, let’s take a closer look at the Logo FS10!
The Logo FS10 is ready for the many miles on the road; paved or gravel!
The FS10 uses uniquely shaped hydroformed aluminum tubing to create a sporty and sophisticated looking eBike that almost looks like a non-electric bike!
The Fazua evation mid-drive system is cleanly integrated into the downtube of the frame for a super clean look.
The 250 watt (400 watt peak) Fazua evation mid-drive motor connects to the bottom bracket at the cranks.
There are 3 levels of pedal assist and it provides assist up to 20 mph and once at that limit there is a freewheel that decouples the motor from the cranks so there is no resistance from the motor when pedaling.
The motor also decouples when the bike is set to “No Support” mode.
You can see that the Fazua bottom bracket is not much bigger than a traditional bike’s bottom bracket.
Removing the battery & motor Drivepack is handled by unlocking it with the key (2 supplied).
Once the pack is unlocked the button above the lock area is depressed to release the Drivepack & battery.
The Drivepack with battery is removed by pulling it out of the downtube area.
When the Drivepack (motor with battery) has been removed the bike weighs 35.3 pounds (Medium frame size in this test) which makes it a little easier to pick up and load onto a car rack.
The bike with the Drivepack (motor & battery) weighs 42.6 pounds (Medium frame size in this test).
Here is a look at the bottom bracket attachment point.
And this is the corresponding attachment from the Fazua evation mid drive motor at the bottom of the Drivepack.
At the top of the Drivepack is the battery on/off button and battery level indicator and the connector to the eBike system & charger.
The total Drivepack (motor & battery) looks a lot like many internal frame batteries except it also include the motor!
Here is a look at the Fazua battery charger connected to the battery in the Drivepack. This test bike came with a European plug and the white adapter is for US outlets.
Charging time is about 3.5 hours for a full charge from empty.
The battery can be removed from the Drivepack for swapping out with a fully charged battery. This is a look at the battery partially removed from the Drivepack.
And this is the battery next to the Drivepack. The battery weighs 3.1 pounds with the Drivepack weighing 4.2 pounds for a total weight of 7.3 pounds.
Fazua also offers an optional downtube cover that is an empty tube to take the place of the Drivepack & battery when riding the FS10 as a non-electric bike. It weighs less than 1 pound and it can store tools, food, small clothing, etc.
It is impressive that you can get 2 bikes in 1 (electric & non-electric) with the Logo FS10!
Now let’s take a closer look at the hydroformed aluminium frame.
There are 3 different frame sizes available in the FS10:
Small for riders in height from 5′-5″ to 5′-10″
Medium for riders in height from 5′-9″ to 6′-2″ (in this testing & review)
Large for riders in height from 6′-1″ to 6′-6″
The FS10 has a lot of unique shapes that make it stand out from many other eBikes on the market.
For instance the headtube has been designed for larger surface area contact points where the top & down tubes connect.
In this view you can see how the down tube has been curved slightly to attach to the headtube. The top tube has a larger tube diameter where it attaches to the headtube.
This is a cool style detail along the top tube where there is a red accent color combined with a polished section of aluminum tubing. Definitely unique!
Just beyond that area is where the top tube slopes down to connect to the seat tube for some additional style.
Under the top tube are attachment points for a water bottle cage or lock holder.
This is the connection point of the seat tube, top tube, and seat stays. The top tube is relatively flat and that line transitions into the seat stays that are somewhat triangular.
Beyond that you can see the structural aluminum rear fender that has a high quality look.
Another unique design highlight is the elevated chain stays that attach to the down tube & seat tube with an angular design which creates a bit of a platform area above the bottom bracket.
Here is a look at the left side of the bike at that same platform area.
And a look at the platform area from above.
There are aluminum gussets that tie the seat and chain stays together at the dropout connection points.
This is the left dropout with the connection of the dropout to the frame, the rear rack & fender, thru-axle for the rear wheel, and the kickstand.
This is the monocoque carbon fiber fork that helps with keeping the weight down and adds to the style of the Logo FS10.
The front brake housing is routed internally through the left fork leg and the fenders attach on the inside of the fork legs for a clean look.
There is a thru-axle for the front wheel for solid side to side stability.
Now let’s take a look at the ride position and control center of the Logo FS10.
The Logo FS10 ride position is focused on performance for an efficient ride. The handlebar is relatively flat and the stem has a slight angle for an aerodynamic position.
The Logo saddle has a relatively narrow profile for good pedaling efficiency and a relief area in the center for a comfortable ride.
On the left side of the handlebar is an ergonomic grip, front Shimano hydraulic disc brake lever, and Fazua control pad.
The ergonomic grips have a “wing” area to provide some wrist support and they have a lock on collar to keep them from rotating.
The Fazua evation control pad and display is pretty simple and easy to use. The lights on the right side indicate the battery level along with a notification light at the top.
The center button turns the bike on (after the battery has been turned on) and the buttons above and below change the 3 levels of pedal assist with the following display colors and power levels:
Green color 125 watts
Blue color 250 watts
Pink color 400 watts
There is also the walk mode that moves the bike at a few mph and helps with walking the bike uphill.
It is activated by setting the bike to no assist (white display color) and holding the down button.
There is also the smartphone app that provides additional features like current speed, battery current & temperature, navigation, distance to destination, estimated time of arrival, trip distance, trip duration.
A premium version (paid) of the app will add more performance-oriented features like a power meter for the rider, a range indicator that takes into consideration the current battery state of charge or topographical route specifications.
Here is a closer look at the Shimano hydraulic disc brake lever. The lever reach can be adjusted to fit the size of your hand.
The right side of the handlebar features an ergonomic grip, Shimano rear hydraulic disc brake lever, and Shimano Deore 10 speed shifter.
Here is closer look at the Shimano Deore 10 speed shifter. The lower paddle shifts up the cogset and the upper paddle shifts down the cogset.
Now let’s take a look at the drivetrain, brakes, and tires of the Logo FS10.
This is the Logo crankset that features a chainring guard to keep the chain on the chainring and to help with keeping your pant legs clean.
The flat platform pedals have a grip tape surface for solid traction.
The combination of your pedal power + pedal assist is leveraged through a Shimano 10 speed cogset.
A Shimano Deore rear derailleur shifts through the 10 speed cogset. There is a clutch in the derailleur to minimize the chain bouncing around.
Slowing the Logo FS10 down is handled by the Shimano BR-RS405 hydraulic disc brakes with 160mm rotors front & rear.
Here is the rear Shimano BR-RS405 hydraulic disc brake with 160mm rotor.
28″ x 20″ Continental Cruise Contact tires are used front and rear. They have a smooth tread pattern for an efficient ride with a width that is suitable for some gravel road riding.
Now for a closer look at the full accessory package that comes stock on the Logo FS10.
Supernova LED lights have a very high quality look and feel. The headlight has an aluminum casing and a good beam of light for seeing the road and for being seen on the road.
Both the front and rear lights run off of the Fazua battery so that you don’t have to worry about charging separate batteries for the lights.
The headlight attaches to the center of the handlebar and the on/off button is on the back of the light casing.
The rear light has 3 bright LEDs and the wires are cleanly routed through the rear aluminum fender.
Here is a look at the structure of the aluminum fender with the front cap removed. These are very durable and should last for many miles.
The front fender provides full coverage and the attachments points are inside the fork legs for a very clean look.
The rear fender also provides 2 attachment points for the rear rack to stabilize it horizontally while vertical supports attach to the frame to carry the cargo loads. It’s a very clean design!
The rear rack provides a platform for bags, baskets, and other items that can be strapped to the rack.

Awesome review, as usual, Pete.
Any idea what the torque capability of this motor is?
In future reviews with any bike, can you ask the mfg why the color grey is used so much? What’s up with that?
