    Trek 1000 derailluer question

    We'll my friend is going to buy a trek 1000 and is going to upgrade to shimano ultegra fornt and rear derailluers and a new ultegra cassette.The question is does tho 05 trek 1000 use 1 1/8", 1 1/4" or braz-on front deralluer. Also its an 8 sp so would you recomend a short or mid cage rear derailluer.

    What is the point, unless this is used and really needs the parts.Shimano only makes road long or short cages and the long is used with triples.

    Ever notice that when a newbie gets the upgade bug the first thing he goes after are the derailleurs?
    Today, I believe my jurisdiction ends here...

    With Sora shifters he's limited to an 8 speed cassette, so an Ultegra 9 speed or 10 speed cassette won't work.

    If the RD was Sora I'd say get rid of it (the RD is the only bad component in the Sora group), but since it's Tiagra I don't really see the point in upgrading it.

    Tell him to ride the bike and replace things as they wear out instead.
