2012 Trek 520 48cm that will fit 5’0″-5’3″. This bike rides great and handles well for touring with the gear range to climb those hills. You will have a big smile after each ride. Only 27.80 lbs with pedals!
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 Dura-Ace/LX 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.

A little about the seller:
I’ve been in the cycling industry for over 30 years (I know, that makes me old!). I’ve been a professional bicycle mechanic for most of those years, including working locally at Lee’s Cyclery here in Colorado before they became Trek Stores. Now I work from home as a Customer Success Manager for a software team. But I still love fixing up and working on bikes, and riding them too!
Purchase from me with peace of mind. Not only can you trust my years of experience, I will provide any mechanical insight at the time of purchase. No warranties or refunds provided. The bikes are sold as-is.
