The ultimate steel touring bike
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.
Generous load capacity
Low touring mounts front and rear stabilize heavy multi-day touring loads.
The smooth ride of ultra-durable butted chromoly steel makes 520 comfortable day after day.
Touring drivetrain combines mountain bike gearing with road bike smoothness.
Longer chainstays, a longer wheel base, and a lower center of gravity provide ultimate stability, even when the bike is fully loaded.
What people are saying
I love my 520. We have done 5,700 miles together, with lots more planned. Only basic maintenance in all that time. Great ride, great bike. If you are looking for something for the long haul this is it. Strongly recommend!

So I've been riding a 520 since 1993. I've purchased a 2009 due to theft :( To me, this should be a standard bike instead of a niche product. It does almost anything you'd want a bike to do when the object is actually getting somewhere.
