Each memeber of the Trek Bicycle Store - Schererville staff has gone through hundreds of hours of training to ensure they are helping our customers choose the best bicycle and bicycle products for their needs.  The staff here works hard to create a culture that welcomes riders of all abilities into the store.  The knowledge of the store goes beyond the ultra-high end rider and caters to children, cruisers and first-time riders also.  

While we put a lot of time into learning, modifying and reforming the products we sell and the way we assist our customers, we are always looking for ways to improve the store, the processes and the products. So, if you have had an experience (good or bad) that you would like to share; please do so here.  We know we can't get better unless we know what we do poorly, so remember that criticism is welcomed.

Employee Highlight
Meet: Emily Res

Basic Info: Hails from Schererville, IN.

Emily has been working here at Trek throughout high school.  She came in as a bicycle assembler, but quickly proved that she had much to offer the Trek Service department.  Despite her love of fashion and clothes, she has loved getting her hands dirty as a mechanic and has solidified herself as an anchor to our service department.  

Her dedication to Trek has been incredible and it shows in her attention to detail and organization, as well as her mechanical prowess.  On top of this, Emily has maintained above a 4.0 GPA in school and will be graduating early from Lake Central. 

We encourage you to come see Emily in action and marvel as she works her way to Trek Master Technician.
