Looking to buy a '99 trek 5500 or 5200. Anyuone know if it has a threadless headset (as newer model have). I'll probably need a longer stem and need to know if it will be easy to swap out.

Thanks

99: 5500 was threadless,5200 threaded.That's what the cataloge shows,but why not ask the seller to be sure?

Thanks Rusty,
I did ask the seller. He didn't give a very confident response, hence the appeal to more savy experts. Also got that answer from Trek tech support on line.

...how clueless some sellers can be. You can usually get there with the right questions though.
