I have this old Trek 1000. It's my commuter, but as a commuter for tooling around town, it is very uncomfortable. It is too small for me. The seat to crank distance is fine, but when I'm leaned over, it's very cramped. So, I have what I've heard called a gooseneck handlebar post.
It appears like I may have to replace that. My goal is to have handle bars up higher so that I can be in a more upright position. Is there a way to do this without removing the handle bar post? Is it worth it? I've been looking at a Trek 7000 as a replacement, but would gladly just use the 1000 if it were more comfortable.
