View of the in-house gym. Staying in shape in Wisconsin is not always easy, especially during the winter. I saw not a single over weight or out of shape worker in the whole place and the gym is a large reason why. Of course, riding bikes is the other reason!

    This doesn’t even have photos of the Trek MTB Park. I heard it is truly awesome with 10+ mile rides and a ton of features.

    I think like a lot of big, successful companies, Trek gets a bad rap for the whole “evil empire” kinda thing. But visiting their home base and interacting with the employees (from the secretary in the lobby, to head of carbon fabrication and design, to the cafeteria lady ringing up lunch…) the atmosphere is very much down to earth and genuine. Sure, some of the designers looked like they were lacking a few hours of sleep, but having a dream job means giving a lot for your Passion and getting back all that you put in and more.

    I have an old VRX 400 frame laying around, I wonder if it’s worth anything?

  • Gordon says:

    Pfft. I was riding trail in Delaware in 1965 with a SS cruiser. No need for gears or handlebarbrakes. Used the same bike I delivered newspapers with. Sheesh, guess I invented trail riding. Anyway, I now own 3 Treks and having a ball.

    “Mountain biking begins” … I always laugh when I see this.

    Bikes were being modified specifically to take on the mountain ranges back in the 1890s. There is a book by Jim Fitzpatrick called ‘The Bicycle and the Bush’ Hesperian Press 2002 that would open a few eyes.

    “Mountain biking begins” … rubbish.

    Warren.
