Here you can find all the Trek catalogs from 1976 up to 1999.
Trek started out in 1975 by providing only frames. In 1976 they would supply entire bicycles.
For many people Trek is most famous for sponsoring Lance Armstrong’s U.S. Postal team during the late 90’s up to his retirement.
But Trek already pioneered the use of carbon fiber in 1989 with the Trek 5000.
It would result in the short-lived but daring design of the Y-Foil, introduced in 1998. One of the few bikes that is designated with something more than just a number.
They we’re also early adopters of the mountain bike craze, with the Trek 850 launched in 1983.
Their early foray in using carbon fibre would be later used with the introduction of the iconic Y33 and Y22 models. Mountain bikes with a monocoque carbon fiber frame. Although it used the suspension technique URT (unified rear triangle) which would turn out to be rubbish, the original design considered iconic.
