520 is the classic steel touring bike, perfected. It's been tuned for maximum comfort, stability, and reliability, day after day, week after week, year after year.
If you’re a committed touring cyclist looking for the utmost in comfort and durability to carry you to familiar destinations and unexplored vistas, 520 is your ride.
- You'll feel the difference: nothing rides like a Trek
- Low touring mounts front and rear stabilize heavy loads
- Disc brakes give you all-weather stopping power
- Balanced geometry is ultra-stable even when fully loaded
Purchaced in December and we're still growing together as a team. In addition to daily commuting we have taken several long rides running light and loaded for touring. The gearing is perfect for loaded climbing steep hills while giving speed on the flats. Over both smooth pavement and the roughest parts of the Frisco Highline. The 520 handles all I've thrown at it and keeps asking for more. It will be my coast to coast ride.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
