520 is a steel touring bike made for the open road. It's the longest-running model in our line-up, and it's built to carry you and your gear on your longest journeys. Rack and mudguard mounts, a wide range of gearing for climbing and a stable touring geometry make it the perfect choice for loaded multi-day trips and comfortable all-day adventures.
You measure the success of a ride in the number of beautiful views, and when you're not riding, you're likely to be found planning your next escape. You hear the call of the open road and want a stable touring bike that's just as capable of carrying a heavy load on multi-day trips as it is on everyday rides.
A road-smoothing chromoly steel frame, alloy disc touring fork with a ThruSkew captured quick release skewer, wide-range 27-speed drive train that's great for hauling a heavy load up hills, Shimano Sora brake/shift levers, Bontrager tubeless-ready wheels, puncture-resistant tyres with reflective sidewalls, included front and rear racks, and all-weather mechanical disc brakes.
520 is a comfortable steel workhorse that's capable of everything from daily rides to expedition tours. It's ready for adventure straight out of the box, with an included front and rear rack and a drive train that's ideal for hauling a heavy load.
- 520 is built to hold up, and it's super reliable over the long haul ? you'll leave this bike to someone in your will
- ThruSkew ensures that the front wheel will never drop out unintentionally, and makes it easier to remove your wheel without removing all of your front cargo
- There's no better way to see the world than from the saddle, and this is the bike that answers your wanderlust
- All-weather disc brakes and puncture-resistant tyres give you the confidence to take on bigger adventures in any conditions
- It's the longest-running model in our line-up, and we've kept it around so long because it's one of the best-loved too
We've spent more than three decades perfecting the 520 geometry to suit the heavy loads and high miles of multi-day touring.

At Bikeology, we pride ourselves on our aftersales service and the quality of the products we sell. If we can’t stand over a product or a service, then we simply don’t sell it.
Every bike we sell comes with a lifetime warranty on the frame. A lifetime warranty on the frame entitles you to a new frame should there be any failure caused by fatigue or defective manufacture. Should this unlikely failure happen, we will process your warranty claim and rebuild your bike from the ground up completely free of charge*.
All other parts fall under the manufacturers warranty, but rest assured, we will do everything we can to get your bike back running smooth as silk as soon as possible, after all, you put your confidence in Bikeology. Should a problem arise, well, now it’s our time to prove you made the right decision in Bikeology.
As part of our drive to make your cycling experience the best it can be, we offer two years FREE servicing with every bike we sell.
What does this actually mean?
ALL labour charges are waived for 2 years from the date of purchase. For example, if your bike needed a service and a new tyre, the typical cost would be €40 plus €16 for a basic tyre. With our two years FREE servicing, this would only cost €16. If your gears need an adjustment, no charge at all!!! Buckled a wheel? Don’t worry, no charge at all!!! Annual service, No Charge……you get the idea!!! ZERO Labour charges for two years**.
*Any new parts needed will be assessed on a case by case basis.
** Fork, Shock and Dropper seatposts not included.
Trek began in 1976, when a pair of determined guys set out to make the best bicycles the world had ever seen. Their vision was grounded in unswerving principles: the product would be of the highest quality craftsmanship and it would bring the joy of cycling to a broader audience.
It was this philosophy that brought Bikeology and Trek together. We know that a quality bike will bring joy and passion to people from all walks of life. With our partnership with Trek, we will continue to bring the joy of the bicycle to more and more people. Some will simply use the bicycle as a tool in their daily life, for others, the bicycle will become a passion that will define the course of their life.
Bikeology and Trek have one thing in common, we are driven by adventure, guided by our history, inspired by community, enchanted by the freedom of the open road and committed, always, to creating, using and providing the world’s greatest bicycles.
