In 1975, Richard (Dick) Burke and Bevil Hogg established Trek Bicycle to provide high-performance bikes made in the United States. Today, Trek offers the brightest and most passionate cycling designers and researchers the resources to redefine the status-quo. Because innovation happens only when you have the courage to ask the hard questions and go where no one has gone before.
The brand had just five employees on the payroll when it initially started operations in 1976. In its first year, Trek produced over 900 touring frames. Steel tubing, lugged and silver-brazed, handcrafted and hand-painted with care.
A culture of craftsmanship and rebellion was fostered in the young American start-up. With every bend and every weld, the finished product helped dimistify the notion that all great bikes must come from Europe. Trek was never just a name. From the beginning, it was a summation of values and their bikes are a testament to these founding principles.
