TREK BIKES

At The Bicycle Chain we have been selling the amazing Trek Bikes since the 90’s, over 25 years representing one of the world’s best bike brands! 

Trek was founded in 1976 by Dick Burke and Bevill Hogg in Wisconsin USA and their very first bikes were made in a barn between their homes. ‘Born in a barn’ is a phrase you’ll see around Trek, a reminder of their humble origins,Trek headquarters is located just a mile up the road from the original barn. Pretty cool!

The company is run by the Burke family to this day with John, son of founder Dick at the helm. Being a family run business it’s clear for all to see that John is so passionate about Trek, their cutting-edge bikes and their customers. Trek may be a very large bike brand today but they still retain a family feel and service level.

Design and testing is performed in-house in the USA with manufacturing carried out in Taiwan, the Netherlands, China and Germany.

In the last decade we have seen Trek go from a strong bike brand to one making some of the most incredible technologically advanced bike brands on the planet. Recruiting the very best talent the industry has to offer has paid off for them big time. 

Trek have an extensive association with professional bike racing, many will be familiar with their Tour De France legacy with a certain Mr Lance Armstrong, I personally owned one of the early carbon fibre Trek Madone models in the United States Postal colours. It’s crazy to look back at how much these bikes have evolved. I was so proud of that bike but it is not a patch on what we ride today, carbon was lauded as stiffer, which it was at the time, but it flexed like crazy compared to today's high performance bikes.

Today, Trek makes some of the world’s most desirable bikes across all major disciplines and frame materials. Making top quality road, mountain, gravel and hybrid bikes in both alloy (aluminium) and carbon frames. 

Trek also offers supercharged electric mountain, road, gravel and hybrid bikes, all equipped with powerful Bosch motors. 

With sizes and styles to suit most riders’, prices from entry-level to the premium Project One customised bike program, Trek offer a comprehensive range that will compete on quality, innovation, value and performance with other major brands such as Giant or Specialized.

TREK ROAD BIKES

Trek’s award winning road bike line up has three models covering three main areas of focus, endurance road, super lightweight and aero road all now with hydraulic disc brakes.

There’s really only one place to start and that’s with the aero road option the Madone. Few bikes can boast the racing pedigree of the Madone. Speed obsessed, the Gen 7 takes aerodynamics to another level saving the most competitive of riders precious watts.

The Domane is Trek’s endurance road offering. Fast and fun to ride with a focus on an accessible, comfortable riding position for those longer days in the saddle. 

Lastly, the Trek Emonda, at one stage the lightest bike in the world, I’ve always felt the Emonda is a great all-rounder that’s a rocket uphill.

For those looking for an extra boost, the electric version is the Domane +. Available in Trek’s own OCLV carbon frame with the almost silent TQ motor or 100 series aluminium frame with the Hyena hub drive option, you will definitely ride further, faster with the assistance provided.

TREK MOUNTAIN BIKES

Trek’s high-performance bike offering continues in their MTB range. Their entry-level hardtail, the Trek Marlin, is our best selling bike by miles thanks to its remarkable value for money. Chunky big brother the Roscoe is an ideal trail focused upgrade if you’re looking to get more adventurous. With 140mm travel front suspension, slack headtube angle and 2.6” wide 29er tyres, the Roscoe is built to handle more extreme terrain than the Marlin.

The Procaliber has a performance XC focus. Fast rolling 29er wheels and the shock absorbing IsoSpeed frame feature make for a rapid off-road bike. 

Full suspension starts with World Championship winning cross country race machine the Super Caliber, the Top Fuel whilst still short suspension travel has a more playful feel. The Trek Fuel EX is a platform that has been around for many years, an incredibly versatile bike, the Fuel is great for a rider who needs the bike to go up efficiently and bring the grin factor on descents.
