    1994 Trek 1200

    Does anyone else have a mid-90's Trek 1200?

    I'm about to upgrade to Sora STI on mine, and had some more questions about my bike and the googles, they do nothing!

    One main one I'd like to know is what size quill stem I need to replace the current one with... and if it's possible to rig together an adaptor to use a modern stem, and if that would be a good idea to do on this frame.

    If someone here doesnt have that bike, you might try bringing it in to a bike shop, they should be able to help you figure out the right size and set up.
    -Early 90's(maybe late 80's?) specialized hardrock, touring setup
    -2000 specialized stump jumper, trail fun

    I have a 92 Trek 1200. It has a 1" quill stem. I replaced it with a 22.2mm adapter that enables me to use a 1 1/8" threadless stem. Works great.

    I have a 1994 Trek 1200 and I can confirm that its a 1" quill stem. Here is an adapter for less than $15: http://www.amazon.com/Inline-Threadl.../dp/B000A6UWV6

    Thanks guys! I appreciate it. I think my next purchase will be an adapter, threadless stem, and possibly some new bars (since the diameter of my old bars will likely not fit the new stem, right?)

    Not if you buy a stem with a 25.4mm clamp.

    Ok, so other than aesthetics (I think an old quill stem will look better with my frame)... what are the arguments in favor of or against getting an adapter and modern stem?

    I must be missing something here. If the Trek has the original bars, what has the stem got to do with upgrading to integrated shifters? The grip diameter of drop bars has not changed in a long long time.
    You could use a quill adpater to change to a threadless stem, but there's no particular advantage to it apart from a wider choice of stems.

    That's what I was asking... the two upgrades have nothing to do with each other except that while I'm upgrading the shifters I want to go ahead and upgrade the stem as well, and was wondering if the quill adapter was going to have any drawbacks (I heard it can slip moreso than a regular quill stem) or not.

    I honestly don't think changing to the adapter and threadless stem would be an upgrade over the quill stem that you already have. A quill stem is one piece and more adjustable and I think the weight would be about the same.

    In My case I wanted to use a FSA Omega Compact bar which requires a 31.8 stem. Much improved over the stock bar for myself. I have not weighted the separate components, but the new set up does feel a little lighter.
