SOLD: 2002 Trek 520
« on: February 01, 2014, 10:12:36 pm »
2002 Trek 520 Touring Bike.

Handmade in Wisconsin.

23" Frame size (center of BB to top of seat tube). Really good shape. New Michelin City rear tire. Plenty of life left in front. Park Tools chain checker reads 0.5. Maybe 15% left on brake pads. A few cosmetic blemishes.

Used for a few short fully loaded tours (RAGBRAI 2002 being the longest) but primarily as a commuter and grocery getter.

Specs found here: http://www.bikepedia.com/quickbike/BikeSpecs.aspx?year=2002&brand=Trek&model=520#.Uux69fldXRU

Don't really want to bother with breaking down and shipping. Hoping for a local buyer or a “West to East'er” looking to pick up a bike in Bellingham, WA at the start of their ride this spring.

I rode this same make/model (but a year older) on a fully loaded cross country tour in 2001. My buddies, with less expensive brand bikes, had numerous break-downs of every variety. I had a single puncture flat from a paper clip of all things.

I think $750 is a good price.

(I just now see that I can only post two small images. If interested reply to post and I'll email more)

Happy Super Bowl Sunday. Should be a fun day for you Northwesterners!

I'm interested in more detail about your bike. You mentioned "shorter rides" and was wondering if yu could estimate miles on the components. Also, what brand are the racks?

I'd appreciate more pics if possible and if I'm not mistaken, the 23" equates to a 58cm in current sizing. Is that right?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the interest.

I'm guessing it's' got maybe 1500 miles total.

The rear rack is stock Trek. It's a hardy aluminum unit. The front is a Jandd Front Low. http://www.jandd.com/detail.asp?PRODUCT_ID=FRLOW

I posted some pics here https://sites.google.com/site/bsheeres/trek-520

The actual measurement from the center of BB to top of seat tube is 22.8-something inches which is 58 cm.
