Hi All!

I ride a Trek 1200 (year 2000) road bike and would like to upgrade to carbon fork. Problem is I don't know what size is my headtube...

I realized my orginal fork is threaded and uses 1" steerer. But I am not 100% sure if I should get a carbon fork with 1" steerer.

(Reason is because the year 2002 model of Trek 1200 uses 1" steerer as well but it uses a 1" to 1-1/8" head tube adapter. So its headtube is actually 1-1/8")

Anyone wanna voice their suggestion?
Thanks in advance!

- no spec.
- steerer is 1"

Thanks in advance
