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.

Steel frame

Bombproof frame with a steel-smooth ride.

Touring geometry

We've spent more than three decades perfecting the 520 geometry to suit the heavy loads and high miles of multi-day touring.

Low touring mounts

Touring-specific mounts stabilize loads for multi-day trips, with no additional hardware required.

Blendr stem

Bontrager stem technology lets you clip your gear directly to the stem for clean looks, maximum user friendliness.

Rack & fender ready

Built-in mounts make it easy to add racks and fenders for added versatility.


Racks make commuting and hauling a practical reality, so it's easier to go by bike.

Reliable Shimano shifting

Dura-Ace bar end shifters, ultra-durable Deore derailleurs, and a Shimano M590 Trekking crank add up to the highest-value touring combination available.

Tubeless Ready rims

Bontrager TLR (Tubeless Ready) Road is the first fully integrated tubeless system for the road.

36-spoke wheels

Super-strong 36-hole rims give 520 a stout foundation for miles and miles of fully loaded riding.

Puncture-resistant tires

Tough Bontrager Hard-Case tires help keep flats from slowing you down.
