Purchaced in December and we're still growing together as a team. In addition to daily commuting we have taken several long rides running light and loaded for touring. The gearing is perfect for loaded climbing steep hills while giving speed on the flats. Over both smooth pavement and the roughest parts of the Frisco Highline. The 520 handles all I've thrown at it and keeps asking for more. It will be my coast to coast ride.
