hello all, I have been enjoying reading and researching here for awhile(through google searches), and I finally picked up my first road bike today. It is a early 90's trek 1200, and I picked it up with clipless pedals for $125, so it seems like a good deal. It shifts well, rides nice, and I am pretty happy with it so far. I haven't gotten used to the downtube shifters, and i just seem unstable shifting while riding so far. I know that I might get used to that someday, but I am just curious how hard/expensive it might be to add the brake/shifters, or "brifters" to this. It just seems safer and more convenient, and if I can pick up some used parts and do it myself, it might be worth it.
So, anyone have any useful information about my bike? It has the shimano rx100 group, and I am impressed with how it shifts even being almost 20 years old. Much better in some ways than my friend's nearly new trek 7.2fx.
any other advice?
