You should have bought the frame through your local dealer. A lot of that third party stuff gets you bupkis. If you buy it from your dealer you get full warranties and support. Then again me personally I wouldn't buy a Trek. The 520 was a decent machine until they decided to get rid of the steel fork and replace it with aluminum. If they had done carbon, I could see ok following trend. Carbon is not great for traditional double rack touring but a carbon fork with mounts is easily sold and a steel fork is not hard to get but an aluminum fork seems fairly low value.
