2014 Trek 520

Get out the maps and plan your countryside tour. Trek's 520 features a compliant chromoly frame and fork for all-day comfort and stability — even when you're carrying a load. Its Shimano shifting is slick and smooth with a wide-range 27-speed drivetrain that makes easy work of long rides and big climbs, and its linear-pull brakes stop you with authority. You'll also love the ride and puncture resistance of the wide Bontrager Race Lite Hardcase tires and the fact that this sweet tourer comes with a rear rack, fender mounts and pedals. Load it up and enjoy the journey.

Comments:

I rode a 2012 Trek 520 from Seaside, Oregon to Long Island, New York. 3,794 miles and it never disappointed me. The frame is heavy, yes, but if you're carrying gear on an unsupported ride, nothing can compete. I had 2 fellow riders on that tour. Both were on "normal" road bikes and had constant issues. I had to replace the tires in Iowa, but other than that the 520 was perfect. I replaced the saddle with a Brooks for a more comfortable ride, and added a front rack for carrying capacity. I found the 520 very enjoyable to ride around without weight, too. (Which is how I got it stolen, and why I need another one.) It's faster than you'd think, in spite of its own weight. The gear system takes a bit of getting used to, but it soon feels natural. The most distinctive difference between this and my racing bike is the wheels. They're wider than a standard road bike, which is perfect for touring. If you ever end up on gravel or dirt, you won't be totally sunk. They also bear weight well. I don't just mean this in terms of balance. I carried about 50 lbs of gear everyday for 52 days and never broke a spoke. This bike is tough as nails, and comfortable to ride.

I have ridden over 12,000 miles on my trek 520 and am thinking about getting a second one so I can have 1 full time at my vacation home. After 12 years of riding a mid level trek I decided to upgrade and couldn't believe the difference. I do 2 week long tours in the summer and this bike is good for all types of elevations. fit woman in my 50's I just love this bike

    Comments:

    I researched all the top brands looking for the perfect bike for me and the 520 has won my heart. It's the most comfortable bike I have ever been on and the gearing is great for flatland or hilly riding. I have been able to double my ride distance and am planning a long tour in the spring. I would not have even thought about it on my last bike. I have upgraded the seat, but that's all.
