Touring - Darn lousy timing, Good deal on a 520 though
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I have been lusting after a Trek 520 for some time. I don't know why exactly. I am not in a stage of life where I can do any real touring. But it seems a perfect second bike. For long (32 mile each way) commutes to work. Rainy rides. Trips to the store.
I found a decent deal on one on the Washington DC craigslist today, if anyone needs one. The timing is bad for me, as in I would probably have to sleep on it when the wife found out I bought another bike.

How big is it? I've been looking for a 25" of early 90s vintage (back when they were still lugged but had a reasonably modern drivetrain).

If it was the same one I was looking at from the Bethesda area it is only a 19" frame. The woman who rode it was 5' tall at it fit her fine. I think that ad went up on Craigslist either on the 18th or 19th if you want to check it out.
No there is another one for a 53-54cm (forget exactly) up in Frederick. Like a 2004 for $400
