Is that chainstay length in millimeters? Wheelbase should be a little over 1m. Longer chainstays give better heel clearance when using panniers.
that’s overall wheelbase, although I may need to re-measure. I had measured the stays before and they’re about 5mm different, with the 520 being just a smidge longer.
