Gear Talk / Opinions on first budget touring bike
« on: April 22, 2020, 10:49:29 pm »
Newbie alert!

I'm planning to get into bicycle touring once the times allow and I am curious what peoples thoughts are early 2000's bikes. I'm planning to get a 2003 Trek 520 for 400$ which after doing a decent amount of research seems to be a pretty solid bike for commuting and touring. However after talking with a friend he thinks I should avoid it as bicycle standards have changed since then and parts may be hard to find. At this price point should I be concerned?

I appreciate any feedback!
