I have read alot of impressions of this bike. Coming from a racing style bike, I enjoyed the stability as opposed to the twitchy feel of a racing bike. Barcons were not too bad, would take some getting used to.

It would be interesting to ride a newer 520 and get a feel for the lower gearing.

The hunt continues!

Can I ask your height and inseam? I'm curious as to how a 520 fits. I'm ride a 57cm bike with a non sloping top tube and was wondering if I'd go up or down a cm on a 520.
