The Trek T100 has convinced my wife that she enjoys tandeming! Its given both of us a chance to see what we like/dislike in a first bike. The frame is a 20/18 which is terrible terrilby small for our 6"2 & 5"7 builds.
As a result it looks like I will probably be picking up a Trek T200 this weekend. It should address the two most glaring issues for us: Longer stoker compartment (its either a 62/56 or a 58/54 the owner doesnt know for sure.)... and drop bars for me. I just cant get comfortable with the flat bars. I like my hoods too much.
My question is in regards to swapping out the quill stem. What size adapter do I need? Bikepedia doesn't give the dimension on the stock one.
I will give the barcons a chance before making any bit decisions there. But if I wanted to go with brifter how hard is it to find Tiagra or better 3X8... or will the rear wheel accept a 9 speed cassette?
Im really just stoked about my wife being more comfortable - that means she will want to ride more!
