520 is a classic steel touring bike built for the open road. It’s the longest running model in Trek’s lineup, 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.
