Feature tour


  1. Generous load capacity

    Low touring mounts front and rear stabilize heavy multi-day touring loads.

  2. Supreme comfort

    The smooth ride of ultra-durable butted chromoly steel makes 520 comfortable day after day.

  3. Touring-specific drivetrain

    Touring drivetrain combines mountain bike gearing with road bike smoothness.

  4. Ultimate stability

    Longer chainstays, a longer wheel base, and a lower center of gravity provide ultimate stability, even when the bike is fully loaded.

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.
