Cyclescheme is the UK's most popular cycle to work benefit, creating more cyclists than any other provider.

Trek’s hybrids are its most popular bike type, which indicates that they’re doing something right with their design.

Trek is unusual among American bike brands in offering not just spartan sports hybrids but fully equipped city bikes that would look at home on the streets of Amsterdam or Berlin. It’s a welcome addition. 

The company was set up 1976 to offer a domestic alternative to the then dominant high-performance European bikes. Founders Dick Burke and Bevil Hogg had closed their Stella Bicycle Shop chain the year before. They hadn’t had a standout brand. So they decided to start their own. 

In the first year, Trek produced 904 steel touring frames in a barn in Wisconsin, close to today’s headquarters. Since then Trek has become a huge bicycle business. It’s well known for its mainstream road and mountain bikes. Yet it has a history of innovation that rubbishes the bike-snob claim that big brands are somehow ‘boring’. In 1992, Trek’s 5500 road bike was the world’s lightest production carbon fibre frame (1.11kg). Women-Specific Design bikes were launched in 2000. Trek backed 29er wheels for mountain bikes long before they became standard. In recent years, the brand has got behind transport cycling and, as you’ll see below, produced some nice ones.

Powerfly 4 e-Bike

Powerfly 4 e-Bike 

The more you spend on a fitness hybrid, the sportier it will tend to be. That’s evident in the FX Sport 4’s name and weight, which is scarcely over 10kg despite disc brakes. The gearing reflects its more athletic aspirations too: 2x10 Shimano Tiagra, which you find on road bikes rather than trekking bikes. Bottom gear is higher – although at 34/34, it’s decent for a bike with a double chainset. While it has the same DuoTrap S sensor mount as the FX3, like that bike this isn’t only for working up a sweat on. There are hidden mudguard mounts on the carbon fork, and the aluminium frame will accept a rack as well. Shimano MT-201 hydraulic brakes are powerful, weatherproof, and should need minimal maintenance. This is the women’s-specifc model; a men’s FX Sport 4 is also available.
