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.
