|Anyone know where I can find the specs on a 1996 TREK 2200 (48 cm)? Rake, trail, steer tube angle, seat tube angle?
I want to upgrade to a threadlesss and carbon fork. What fork (lightweight, stiff) would go well with my frame?

|Can't answer all of your questions but Treks have relatively steep head tubes so I would suggest a 40mm rake.

|do steep head tubes apply to frames back in 1996 also?
anyones else concur with 40mm rake for my 1996 trek 48"?

|some of those smaller framesets had slack head tube angles to lengthen the wheel base/avoid toe overlap. I wouldn't assume a 40mm rake; my gut would have been 45. But take the bike into a good LBS (esp. one that works with custom mgfs, like a Serotta dealer) and they'll have one of those round liquid filled gizmos (technical term!) that can tell you the HTA.|| |
