520 is a classic steel touring bike built for the open road. It’s the longest running model in Trek’s line-up, and it’s been perfected year after year since 1983. Disc brakes, a road-smoothing steel frame, rack and fender mounts, and a stable touring geometry make 520 the perfect choice for loaded multi-day trips and comfortable all-day adventures.

Built for the long haul

520 is built to hold up, and it’s super-reliable over the long haul. You’ll leave this bike to someone in your will.

All-weather capability

Disc brakes, rack and fender mounts, Tubeless Ready wheels and puncture-resistant tyres give you the confidence to take on bigger rides.

Tour-ready features

520 has a road-smoothing steel frame and alloy fork, tour-approved front and rear racks, and a wide-range drivetrain that’s ideal for hauling a heavy load up hills.

More places to go

Additional tyre clearance gives riders the option to swap the standard 700x38c tyres for a set of 29x2.0’’ tyres for a smoother ride on more adventurous terrain.
