Don’t Americans know how to build good bicycles? Don't worry, we didn't come up with this admittedly provocative question. Trek’s founder Dick Burke was wondering about this - fortunately he did so already back in 1976! Since then, enough time has passed and it has been used to prove the opposite! Today, Trek's MTBs compete for top positions all around the world, Trek’s road bikes define standards, leisure bikes and Trek’s e-bikes make everyday cyclists happy all over the world. But it all started with a bike ride and a provocative question.
